The SkyTrak 13 Weather Team is tracking a line of storms for late Friday afternoon and Friday night. Here is the latest timing with FutureTrak13 to help you make your Friday night plans.
If this timing verifies, the storms will push south of I-70 around 8pm and end around 11pm. There will be a live update on Channel 13 starting at 5pm.
We are tracking a new round of rain and storms scheduled to arrive after midnight. These storms have been responsible for severe weather across Illinois, but they are forecast to weaken overnight. Heavy rain, lightning and gusty winds will be possible through the morning commute.
The storms move out early Friday morning and the heat builds. Friday will be hazy, hot and humid with highs near 90. There will be another chance for rain and a few storms Friday afternoon and evening. These will be scattered, but may impact your Friday night plans.
The weekend will be hazy, hot and humid too with highs in the 90s. A few storms are possible on Saturday afternoon and again on Sunday afternoon. The round on Sunday will be monitored closely for a few strong/severe storms. That round of rain and storms will linger into Sunday night and early Monday, before another dry stretch of weather arrives late Monday. That dry stretch should last for a few days next week.
The break from the rain will continue tonight and tomorrow. Skies will be partly cloudy overnight, with lows in range of 55-60 degrees. Watch for a few patches of morning fog.
There will be a mix of sun and clouds on Thursday, with highs in the lower 80s. We are expecting the morning sun to give way to afternoon clouds, as a warm front moves our way. Along that warm front a stray shower or storm may develop Thursday afternoon across northern Indiana.
There is a chance for a few showers and storms on Friday too, but there will also be lots of dry hours. The heat will be the bigger story for Friday and the weekend.
Highs will be near 90 on Friday and in the lower 90s on Saturday and Sunday. With the heat and humidity building, heat index values will be in the range of 100-105 for Friday and this weekend. We will need to take precautions from the high heat and high humidity. There is a chance for few afternoon storms this weekend. If you do have outdoor plans this weekend, there will be plenty of dry time too.
We are tracking the best chance for widespread rain and storms on Monday next week.
A few rounds of storms yesterday and overnight left several inches of rain across most of Indiana. Some portions of the state saw more than 4″ of rain in the past 24 hours. All of our waterways remain high and flooding remains a concern.
There is finally some dry weather in the forecast. After a stray shower east and south of Indianapolis on Tuesday afternoon, a drier weather pattern arrives. Skies will be partly cloudy overnight, with lows in the lower and middle 60s.
There will be some morning sun and some afternoon clouds on Wednesday, with highs near 80 degrees. Highs will be near 80 on Thursday too, with a mix of clouds and sun.
Higher heat and humidity return for Friday and the weekend, with highs in the upper 80s and lower 90s. There is a slight chance for a stray storm later Friday. We have the weekend dry for now, with the better chance for more rain and storms arriving early next week.
The risk for severe weather continues across central Indiana through early Tuesday morning. A new round of storms is developing across Illinois and will move across central Indiana Monday night. Here is the updated timing with FutureTrak13.
Storms will contain heavy rain and the threat for damaging wind, large hail and a few tornadoes. Stay weather aware through Tuesday morning. Severe storms can be even more dangerous at night. Have a way to stay informed overnight. Keeping Channel 13 on your TV and having a weather radio are a couple of good ideas. Make sure your cell phones are charged and remember your severe weather plan tonight.
There will be lots of dry hours this weekend, with the best chance for storms later Saturday night and early Sunday. It will be dry overnight, with patchy fog early Saturday morning. Temperatures will be in the 60s early Saturday. Expect a mix of clouds and sun on Saturday afternoon, with highs in the lower and middle 80s. Storm chances return Saturday night. There will be a complex of storms coming out of Illinois. A complex of storms can be hard to time until it develops. There will be new information on timing and track, so check back for updates. Here is the latest timing with FutureTrak13 to help you make your weekend plans.
A few of the storms may reach strong/severe limits. There will be more dry hours on Sunday afternoon, with highs in the upper 80s. A few pop-up storms are possible later Sunday. The overall weather pattern stays warm and active, with daily storm chances through next week.
Rain chances will linger through late afternoon. If you have Friday evening plans, the rain will be gone and there will be a few breaks in the clouds. Evening temperatures will be in the 70s. Overnight temperatures will be in the lower and middle 60s. A few clouds and patchy fog are possible through early Saturday.
Saturday will be dry, with a mix of clouds and sun. Highs are forecast in the lower and middle 80s. There will be a few complexes of storms to watch later Saturday and Sunday. Right now Saturday will be the drier day this weekend. Storms are possible later Saturday night and early Sunday and again Sunday afternoon and evening. A few storms may reach severe limits on Sunday and Monday, as our unsettled weather pattern continues.
Highs will be in the middle and upper 80s through the middle part of next week. If you are looking ahead, there will be scattered storms on Monday and then some drier weather expected most of Tuesday into Wednesday. Storm chances return later Wednesday and Thursday.
