A Stormy Night, A Stormy MondayApril 27th, 2014 at 7:06 pm by Pamela Gardner under Colts Forecast, Weather
Tonight some thunderstorms move through Indiana. Monday we have a chance for severe storms in the evening.
Right now on VIPIR: A line of storms is completely falling apart as it moves northeast into drier and more stable air. A few showers are in the southwestern Indiana. More storms are still popping up in Illinois and a mass of rain is farther to the west in Missouri. Those storms and showers move in overnight.
Storm Risk: The extreme southwestern sliver of Indiana is still under a slight risk for severe storms tonight. The real threat remains west of Indiana tonight. In Arkansas there is a rare high risk for a severe weather outbreak and even large tornadoes. Back in Indiana, as we get into Monday we have slight risk for severe storms. Damaging wind will be the main threat, along with large hail, heavy rain and an isolated tornado. That severe threat will be between 6pm and 10pm Monday.
Timing: Scattered thunderstorms move in by midnight tonight as the environment over central Indiana becomes more favorable for storms. Strong storms are possible into daybreak Monday. Monday afternoon we will have a break in the storms. We should get some sunshine to add fuel for some pop up storms. Between 6pm and 11pm Monday another round of storms will move through central Indiana and those could be severe.
Temperatures: Current temps are in the 60s and lower 70s. Tonight’s lows dip into the 40s and 50s. Monday’s highs reach the low to mid 70s between the rounds of storms.
Extended Forecast: We stay rainy and stormy all week long as the low pressure system stalls out.
