STATEWIDE–Severe weather is possible for most central and southern Indiana throughout Friday and Saturday.

“Rain chances in Indianapolis are around 90%. As you get closer to the Ohio River, some locations down there are under a slight risk for severe weather. There is a stronger chance for some stronger storms there with damaging winds, large hail, and even an isolated tornado can’t be totally ruled out,” said Jason Puma, meteorologist with the National Weather Service in Indianapolis.

Central Indiana is under a “marginal risk” for severe weather, which means isolated severe storms are possible, with the threat of isolated damaging winds, small hail, and maybe a tornado. The far southern portion of Indiana is under a “slight risk”. A slight risk ramps up the probability, with more storm reports.

Rain will continue to fall periodically throughout the day Friday, but it doesn’t stop there.

“We’re going to have a rainy day on Saturday as well. There’s a low-pressure system moving through the area, so that means rain chances will continue. But the system will depart the area on Saturday night. We’re supposed to end the weekend on a drier, but cooler note,” said Puma.

He expects most places in Indiana to have high temperatures in the 60s on Sunday.

“Most people are not going to want to go back to work on Monday because highs will be in the 70s in most places with sunny skies. Then we’ll see rain chances return in the middle of next week. Get ready for some spring showers,” said Puma.
