STATEWIDE–The best chance for severe weather is from 3-10 pm Friday, but the severe weather threat doesn’t end there.

“There will still be more storms after 10 pm and overnight, but that would be more of a flood threat than anything else,” said Mike Koch, a meteorologist with the National Weather Service in Indianapolis. “It looks like all of central Indiana has a chance for severe weather.”

High temperatures will be in the 90s across much of the state Friday with heat indices over 100. Koch said the main threats to watch out for are heavy rain, hail, high wind gusts, and tornadoes.

“There could be a couple of isolated tornadoes late Friday afternoon. Also, some wind gusts could reach 50 mph or higher,” said Koch.

Nearly the entire state is under an enhanced risk for severe weather from 3-10 pm Friday. That means there likely will be a widespread concentration of low-to-moderate intensity severe thunderstorms, which can bring several threats.

Koch believes there is also a severe weather threat for Saturday, but then things ease up on Sunday.

“On Saturday, we’re looking at damaging winds and maybe even a tornado along with large hail Saturday afternoon and early evening,” said Koch. “But severe weather doesn’t look likely for Sunday, just some general thunderstorms. The chance for storms exists through Monday night.”

Then temperatures will start to cool down Tuesday with high temperatures in the 70s and no threat of rain or storms.
