STATEWIDE--Some parts of Indiana could get scattered showers and thunderstorms Friday, but then there will be less humidity and cooler temperatures this weekend.

“Friday is kind of our transition day. We’re going to have a cold front coming down from the north to the south,” said Alexander McGinnis, meteorologist with the National Weather Service in Indianapolis. “With that transition, there is certainly a chance for some isolated and scattered thunderstorms.”

There is a “marginal risk” for strong to severe storms in southern Indiana. That means isolated severe storms are possible, with the threat of isolated damaging winds, hail, and maybe a tornado.

“Some hail could be large. If you are south of Indianapolis, you could see some isolated showers and thunderstorms lasting through the middle of the night. The area likely to be affected is from Vincennes to Bloomington and Greensburg as well as some areas south of there,” said McGinnis.

McGinnis expects a much cooler and drier weekend for the entire state.

“The weekend looks like a return for more pleasant weather. It won’t be too far below normal temperature and humidity levels for this time of year, but it will be much less humid than it was the last few days,” said McGinnis.

While there are some chances for rain next week, McGinnis doesn’t expect high temperatures to get much higher than the low 80s.
