Today will feature a continuation of gloomy conditions, including areas of fog and drizzle- especially this morning.
Thankfully, most of central Indiana will get a break from significant rainfall through the majority of our Friday, but a new batch of steady to occasionally heavy rain will build in overnight into the day Saturday.
We’ll add thunderstorms into the forecast Saturday night into the predawn hours Sunday as a deepening surface low tracks into the Great Lakes and sweeps a cold front through the state Sunday morning. A couple of these storms could become strong across central Indiana and even severe downstate. As such, the Storm Prediction Center (SPC) has included the southern half of Indiana in a “marginal” risk of severe during this time period. We’ll keep a close eye on models over the next 24 hours as it’s possible this marginal and slight risk may need to be expanded further north.
Thankfully, drier air will quickly sweep into the state Sunday afternoon and this should allow sunshine to return as we close the weekend. Beforehand, additional rainfall of 1″ to 2″ will be widespread across central Indiana with locally heavier totals.
High pressure will settle overhead to open the new work week, allowing for a quieter time of things before a new active period develops by the middle of the week…
