Threat for Severe Storms This WeekendOctober 5th, 2013 at 7:07 am by Ken Brewer under Weather
TODAY: A cold front has slowed down in its approach to central Indiana. In the meantime, we will have plenty of unstable weather here in the state, so pockets of rain and thunderstorms will erupt during the day. If we see sunshine, that may increase the threat of severe storms later today, if not, it may just be tropical downpours and rumbles of thunder.
THIS EVENING: The threat of severe weather will continue this evening. Thunderstorms will be in clusters this evening, but again some of them could be strong. Temps will stay in the 70s.
OVERNIGHT: there is a chances of severe thunderstorms overnight, so keep your weather radio handy. Damaging wind and large hail are the biggest threats.
SUNDAY: Since the system has hit the breaks, we will keep rain and storms in the forecast. The main bulk of the cold will slide through in the morning hours. That will be the peak of the severe weather threat. We could see rain linger well into the afternoon. Highs will drop into the mid to upper 60s.
8-DAY FORECAST: A big shot of colder air will arrive Monday and highs will only reach the upper 50s. Temps will warm up again into the 70s and maybe 80s by late-week.
