Strong Storms Thursday, Cool & Wet Weekend Ahead

Our warm stretch will come to a screeching halt starting Thursday, as a potent cold front pushes through central Indiana, sparking a round of strong storms.

Tonight:

Upper level disturbance riding along a warm front is helping to push a few isolated to scattered thunderstorms in northern portions of central Indiana.  A storm or two could be on the severe side, with damaging winds and large hail the primary concern.  Storm threat should diminish by mid to late evening.

Mild temperatures heading into the overnight.  Lows dip to the lower to middle 60s.

Tomorrow:

Strong cold front will swing into the state during the afternoon.  A few storms could be on the strong to severe side.  There is a slight risk for severe storms as we head into the afternoon for much of central Indiana.  Meteorologist Brad Maushart has more details here

All modes of severe weather are in play, with damaging winds the primary concern.

Storms should exit the area by mid to late evening.

 

Highs top out in the middle 70s.

Friday:

Much cooler temperatures following the front, with highs only topping out around 60°

Weekend:

Wet and much cooler weather on tap for the weekend.  Expect a soggy day, especially for southern half of the state on Saturday.  Temperatures will only hit the middle 50s.  Just a few morning showers for Sunday, with temperatures returning to the lower 60s

8 Day Forecast:

After our brief cool down, temperatures should warm up in a hurry for the work week.  Lows 60s expected Monday, but 70s, and potentially 80s return for the middle of the week with dry weather.
