INDIANAPOLIS–Saturday is the first day of Spring, but the weekend will start off chilly across much of Indiana. It will warm up eventually.
“We’re expecting lows to get down to the upper 20s and lower 30s for Friday and Saturday night,” said Alexander McGuiness, meteorologist with the National Weather Service in Indianapolis. “Then each day it will get warmer under sunny skies.”
He expects highs in the upper 50s on Saturday and then into the 60s by Sunday and Monday. That’s the case for nearly the entire state of Indiana.
More rain is expected next week.
“This time we’re talking about a chance for some showers, maybe even a low chance of thunder, on Tuesday into Tuesday afternoon. The temperature will be around 65 degrees. We’re going with a slight chance of showers and thunderstorms from Tuesday through Wednesday along with a chance of showers without the thunder on Thursday,” said McGuiness.
There are several rivers across the state dealing with minor flooding because of Thursday’s rain.
“The main rivers will be going down over the next few days. Since no rain is likely until Tuesday, it will give us a chance to dry out,” said McGuiness.
Several areas were already in the minor flood stage Thursday night, including roads near Eagle Creek in Zionsville. The same can be said for several areas along Eagle Creek and Mud Creek in Fishers.
