Sunday Forecast Includes Isolated Showers & Storms

By · August 14, 2011 at 7:07 am

Saturday night severe thunderstorms rolled through Central Indiana, impacting the Indiana State Fairgrounds.  More than 40 people were injured waiting for Sugarland to take the stage, and four people lost their lives.  The stage collapsed as a gust front moved through the area.  A Severe Thunderstorm warning was issued at 8:39pm for Marion County, at 8:45 pm 60 to 70mph winds hit the stage at the fairgrounds.  A gust front is a strong gust of wind from a thunderstorm.

Severe weather is not expected today, but isolated showers and thunderstorms will be possible.

Highs today will reach the upper 70s with a 30% chance for an isolated shower or thunderstorm.  It appears that the best chance for rain will be for the Eastern counties of Central Indiana.

Overnight, patchy fog will develop as temps drop to the low 60s under partly cloudy skies.

Monday and Tuesday dry weather returns, and so do temps in the 80s.

Our next chance of rain begins late Wednesday night into Thursday.
