Not a Weekend Washout, But Rain Expected Both Today and TomorrowBy
Get ready for a cool, and at times, wet weekend!
We started off the morning with cool temps in the 40s and scattered rain showers with isolated storms. We should see a break in the rain midday, but late afternoon into the evening storms may develop, especially in the southern half of the state. There’s a slight risk of severe storms for areas south of Indy into Kentucky this afternoon and evening – the biggest risks are for large hail and damaging winds.
Highs today will likely land about 10 degrees below average. The average high is 68. Today’s high in Indy: 58. The farther south you go, the warmer it will get.
Tonight, we’ll have mostly cloudy skies with maybe a leftover shower. Despite the clouds, temperatures will cool down into the low 40s in Central Indiana with 30s to the north. Far Northern/Northeastern Indiana could get down to the freezing point by early Sunday morning, and a FREEZE WATCH has been issued for that part of the Hoosier State.
By Sunday afternoon, we’ll warm up a little. Highs will still be below average, but we should manage low 60s in Indy, closer to 70s in Bloomington. Most of Sunday should be dry, but an isolated shower or t-storm can’t be ruled out.
We keep at least a slight chance of a shower or thunderstorm in all next week, but with a warm front lifting north of Indy for much of the week, we’ll see temperatures soar into the 70s and 80s to start off the month of May.
