Saturday:
High temperatures are forecast to get very close to 90 degrees. If IND hits 90 it will be the first occurrence so far in 2014. Humidity will remain high and mostly cloudy skies may give way to scattered showers and storms during Saturday afternoon. Lows will remain in the low 70s.

Additional rain is expected Saturday night into Sunday morning. A line of showers may set up in western parts of the state, leading to potential flooding. However, exactly where the showers set up will determine who will see the heaviest rain, and is still uncertain.

Sunday:
Isolated showers still possible, as high temperatures reach the low 90s. Lows in the low 70s.

Monday and Tuesday:
Partly cloudy, warm and humid. highs near 90. Lows near 70.

Severe Storms Tonight:
The slight risk for severe weather includes the possibility of damaging winds and small hail from a line of storms expected to move through this evening and overnight. Storms may also produce very heavy rainfall and lead to minor flooding, especially in locations that received 2-3″ of rain this morning (closer to Muncie).

With plenty of moisture leftover from this morning’s storms, and sunshine breaking through, there is a chance afternoon storms will develop and bring the possibility of severe weather this evening.

ADI Current Dew PointADI Current Temps

Current temperatures are rising with some clearing taking place. Dewpoints are well into the 70s which will provide ample moisture and instability for this afternoon’s storms.

ADI SPC Day 1

The Storm Prediction Center puts central and northern Indiana under a “slight risk” for severe weather this evening. This means storms may have the potential to produce gusty winds, hail and isolated tornadoes.
