Bedford had some reports of small hail and additional thunderstorms down south have hail as well. Watch for that to continue, and possibly migrate closer to I-70 this afternoon. We will continue to track this for you this afternoon.
A cluster of slow-moving thunderstorms have camped out in Martin, Daviess, and Knox Counties. The National Weather Service has issued Flash Flood Warnings for those counties. We mention this, because the storms are trying to migrate a bit north and we will track those to see if they cause problems for people in Lawrence, Jackson, and any area south of Bloomington and Columbus.
Meanwhile, just pockets of rain across the viewing area. Randy will have the latest at Noon.
Thunderstorm cells are popping up all around Indianapolis right now. These storms will be hit or miss all day long. No all day rains, but any location in central Indiana has a chance for a brief thunderstorm. The main threats from these storms will be gusty wind, heavy rain and lightning.

Spotty thunderstorms are moving out of central Indiana. We have a break from the rain this morning, but once we reach the afternoon hours more storms are anticipated. A front will stall out over us today. At any point during the day there is a chance for a storm, but not an all day rain. Rainfall from the first storms last night totaled up to a quarter of an inch in a few places. An additional quarter of an inch is possible today, depending on where the storms set up.
Temperatures are warm and humid in the mid and upper 60s. Highs today reach the upper 70s and lower 80s. Tonight’s lows will be warm again in the lower 60s.
Highs on Friday will be around the 80 degree mark again. Scattered t-storms are in the forecast again for Friday. This weekend at the IMS it is Pole Day and Bump Day. Saturday for Pole Day there is a chance for scattered storms-but not an all day rain with highs in the lower 80s. Sunday for Bump Day it looks drier with highs in the lower 80s. The extended forecast keeps our highs summer-like. Storm chances return for the first part of the work week with maybe some strong storms Monday into Tuesday.
Scattered showers and thunderstorms are expected to continue overnight. A line of thunderstorms pushed through Indianapolis around midnight and that line continues to drift south and east.
Additional storms are popping up between Lafayette and Lebanon. Overall, most of central Indiana will have the chance for showers and storms tonight. That chance will extend to tomorrow and Friday as well.

A line of thunderstorms is moving through central Indiana and producing lightning, thunder and heavy rain over Indianapolis. The line extends from Greencastle to near Greenfield. The line is expected to pass through quickly, producing heavy rain then continue drifting south and southeast.
Temperatures remain mild ahead of the line, with the showers helping to drop temperatures out of the 70s and into the 60s.
The line of heavy rain and thunderstorms is moving through Boone and Hamilton County, bringing heavy rain and lightning to Noblesville, Fishers, Carmel, Zionsville and northern parts of Indianapolis.
The line is not producing severe weather, but is producing very heavy rain as it’s not moving very quickly. The line is expected to continue drifting south as it moves east.
Forecast 8 VIPIR shows a line of heavy rain and thunderstorms has developed from Crawfordsville to near Muncie. This line is expected to continue filling in and will produce locally heavy rain. Thunder and frequent lightning will also accompany the line. Expect more scattered showers to develop, especially south of the line, once these storms mature and begin to weaken.
To the south, you may notice areas of green on radar. This is not rain, but something known as “ground clutter.” It typically occurs on warmer nights and is caused by interference with the radar beam from objects near the surface.
