INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) — Our best widespread rain chance in well over a month continues today. Well above average temperatures await us this weekend and beyond.
Quiet weather for the early morning hours, with showers and storms approaching the western portions of the state.
Temperatures again mild with the blanket of cloud cover, with most areas in the lower/middle 60s.
Cut off low continues to spin over Illinois this morning. As the low moves slowly into Indiana through the day, expect scattered showers and storms across much of the state starting mid morning and continuing well into the late afternoon hours.
Severe weather looks to be limited to southern portions of the state, where hail with a few strong wind gusts will be possible late today.
Beneficial rain amounts of over 0.5″, with locally higher amounts will be possible through the day.
Highs top out in the middle 70s this afternoon.
Low pressure will gradually travel to the east, diminishing our rain chances gradually through the evening and overnight hours.
