STATEWIDE–A wind advisory goes into effect tonight for north central and northern Indiana and will last until early Thursday morning, says the National Weather Service.

“We’re expecting the stronger winds after 7 pm tonight, especially north and west of the Indy metro area. Winds probably will gust between 40 and 45 mph. Lots of those wind gusts will be done shortly after midnight. The advisory goes until 7 am. The wind gusts will hold on a little longer once you get north of Lafayette and Kokomo. In much of northern Indiana, they may hold on closer to daybreak,” said Sam Lashley, meteorologist with the National Weather Service in Indianapolis.

Rain showers are expected to move back in late tonight and into early Thursday.

“But heavier rain is on the horizon for Friday night into Saturday, especially for areas south of Indianapolis where one to two inches of rain are possible. It doesn’t look like anything severe,” said Lashley.

Temperatures are also supposed to drop.

“We will see temperatures start to fall behind that cold front on Thursday and back towards more seasonal temperatures really,” said Lashley.

By Friday, many high temperatures will be in the 40s. Lashley believes high temperatures will drop into the 30s at times during the weekend.

“This is a great time for people to be prepared for winter weather. Don’t take these recent mild temperatures for granted,” said Lashley.
