INDIANAPOLIS – After a warm, sunny week, rain is expected for most of the weekend in central Indiana. Most of that rain is supposed to fall Saturday and Sunday afternoon, says Jason Puma, meteorologist with the National Weather Service in Indianapolis.

“Primarily it’s going to be, like I mentioned, during the afternoon hours due to essentially strong daytime heating and a moist air mass in place.”

Puma says the forecast is similar on Sunday with rain in the afternoon and evening hours along with a slight chance for severe weather. According to Puma the strongest chance for severe storms is in the southern portions of the state.

As far as hazardous conditions are concerned, you should expect the occasional lightning strike and strong winds.

“If people are outdoors the main threats of any sort of hazardous weather would really just be lightning strikes and maybe some gusty winds up to 40 miles an hour.”
