Scattered showers and thunderstorms are moving northeast, slowly through western Indiana. These storms will move through Indianapolis during Daybreak this morning. After those storms move through, the atmosphere should clear a bit, and recharge. This means this afternoon/evening central Indiana could see severe t-storms. Indiana has a slight risk for severe storms today. The threats will be damaging wind, large hail, tornadoes and torrential rain. Rainfall totals of 2″ to 3″ + through Saturday night will be likely.
Temperatures are very warm and it is muggy this morning. This afternoon temps reach the upper 70s and lower 80s-depending on the cloud cover and rain timing. Tonight’s lows fall into the mid to upper 60s.
Saturday, all of Indiana has a slight risk for severe storms. Damaging wind, hail, tornadoes and heavy rain are all threats again. High temps on Saturday will be a little cooler in the upper 70s. Sunday is shaping up to be the better of the two days this weekend-partly cloudy and highs in the mid 70s.
A dry spell returns Sunday through Wednesday next week. Temperatures are looking pleasant with highs in the 70s for much of next week.

There is nothing severe at this time, but that could change. T-showers are popping up around Greencastle.

A few thunderstorms are moving through northwestern parts of Indiana. Crawfordsville just had a good downpour with lightning…that storm is heading north, northeast towards Lafayette. There are no severe storms at this time. Additional storms may pop up this morning so don’t be surprised if a rumble of thunder wakes you up. The Forecast 8 team will update here on the weather blog if anything else develops overnight.

Temperatures are very warm already-in the lower 80s. Dewpoint temperatures are high too. Anything above 65º is uncomfortable…Indy’s dewpoint temp is 64º. That means the humidity is high and it feels sticky out there. High temps this afternoon will be in the mid to upper 80s. The temps will depend on cloud cover and if any pop up storms give a place some rain-cooled air.
Mostly sunny to partly cloudy skies dominate the central Indiana sky now. The clouds increase and the pop up storms are possible at any time this afternoon. Widespread severe storms are not expected today in Indiana.
Friday and Saturday, Indiana has a slight risk for severe thunderstorms. Damaging wind, large hail, tornadoes and torrential rain will all be threats.
