INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) — We will continue to see rain and storms move out of the state through Thursday night before we work in much needed refreshing air to end the workweek.
Thursday night: A Severe Thunderstorm Watch remains in effect until 10 PM EDT for far eastern Indiana.
Rain and storm chances will remain in play through sunset as they gradually move south.
Isolated strong to severe storms remain possible before the nighttime hours. The main hazards are damaging winds and large hail, but an isolated tornado cannot be ruled out. Any thunderstorm will contain torrential rainfall and frequent lightning. Localized flooding could become an issue as well.
Lows will fall into the low to mid 60s.
Friday: After a hot and muggy week, we will get to enjoy a marvelous Friday with a comfortable and cooler air mass settling in. If you are heading out to opening day of the State Fair, you will not have to worry about any inclement or uncomfortable weather. Highs will only top out in the upper 70s to low 80s.
Weekend: This is looking like the best weekend forecast we have had in quite some time. Below average temperatures and pleasant air will be in place for both Saturday and Sunday. The only minor setback is a chance of stray showers on Sunday. Highs will rise into the upper 70s to 80s.
8 Day Forecast: We will keep our cooler than normal temperature trend in place through much of next week. Highs look to be right around average by next Friday in the mid 80s. Much of next week will also be dry.
