Strong storms Saturday night

Saturday evening forecast

INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) — Strong thunderstorms are possible throughout the night.

TONIGHT: A Severe Thunderstorm Watch is in effect until 8 p.m. Main threats until 8 p.m. will be heavy rainfall and hail. We have a warm and muggy air mass in place right now and winds in the upper level of the atmosphere will pick up later tonight causing another round of strong storms.

The Storm Prediction Center has much of central Indiana under an “Enhanced Risk” which means confidence is high severe weather will occur during the night. Main threats from now until shortly after midnight will be heavy rainfall, hail, damaging winds and an isolated tornado is possible.

It’s going to be mild, muggy with showers and storms through the evening hours. Storms continue through about 2 a.m.

SUNDAY: We may see a few lingering showers early Sunday morning; otherwise it stays cloudy through much of the day. A few peeks of sun will be possible later in the afternoon.

It’s going to be very windy. A Wind Advisory is in place for much of central Indiana from 8 a.m. until 8 p.m. Look for sustained winds around 20-30 mph and gusts near 40 and 50 mph.

Highs climb into the middle and upper 50s which is right around normal for this time of year.

SUNDAY NIGHT: Skies begin to clear out Sunday night. It’s going to be cool and breezy with lows falling into the 40s.

MONDAY: Sunshine returns to much of the state. It’s going to be breezy but not as gusty as Sunday. Highs climb into the middle 50s.

8-DAY FORECAST: Clouds return on Tuesday with a chance for a few showers in the southern part of the state. Temperatures drop a bit Tuesday with highs staying in the upper 40s. Highs climb back in the 50s for the rest of the work week with partly to mostly cloudy skies. Rain returns on Friday.
