A weather system arrives this evening bringing showers and a few thundershowers. We are timing the rain from about 7pm through 2am. The rain will end by early Friday morning for most of the area, but a lingering shower south is possible.

The weekend forecast is warm, with highs in the 70s on Saturday and Sunday. Most of the weekend will be dry too.

Scattered thundershowers have developed this afternoon. There is lots of cool air in the upper atmosphere helping destabilize the atmosphere. This cool pool of air is also leading to hail producing thundershowers. We have had several reports of hail across central Indiana. These thundershowers with hail, lightning and brief heavy rain will last through sunset.
