This latest round of wet weather will move from west to east late this afternoon and this evening.  The best chance for rain will be from 3pm to 10pm.  Here is the timeline with FutureTrak13.  If you have outdoor evening plans west of Indianapolis, you might get a few of those in.  The complex of rain and storms moves into the eastern half of the state by 7pm and leaves the state by 11pm.

Wednesday Night Update

Thunderstorms with heavy rain, lightning, small hail and gusty winds impacted central Indiana Wednesday evening.  Another round of rain and some thunder is possible early Thursday morning.  We are already tracking more storms developing across Illinois and we will watch closely how they hold together.  FutureTrak13 hints at that round arriving in western Indiana around 1am and weakening by the Thursday morning drive.

It is a cold front that is separating these 2 different air masses.  The front will be the trigger few a few showers and storms on Saturday.  1 or 2 may develop as early as late morning north of Indianapolis, but the better chance for storms will develop in the afternoon hours and linger into Saturday evening.  Remember not everyone will have rain and storms.  If you have outdoor plans, you can check Live Doppler 13 Radar from your phone with the SkyTrak13 Weather App.  It can be very helpful during times of scattered storms.  Here is the timeline for storm chances.
