INDIANAPOLIS–Severe weather is possible on Saturday across Indiana.
“It looks like in the morning Saturday there will be some light to moderate precipitation here and there. Then maybe by afternoon, those thunderstorms may develop and they could be pretty close to the Indianapolis Motor Speedway and maybe to the southeast of there. The exact placement is a little uncertain at this time,” said Randy Bowers, meteorologist with the National Weather Service in Indianapolis.
Bowers says it is best for you to expect to see rain at some point if you are heading out to the Speedway to watch Indy 500 qualifying.
“We know there will probably be a couple of periods of rain and thunderstorms, but there will also be some dry periods. The timeframe, though, is hard to determine. With the instability of the afternoon, somewhere in central Indiana, it looks like there could be a band of intense thunderstorms. Still, it doesn’t look to be widespread severe weather,” said Bowers.
The threat of a tornado Saturday is low.
“But we can’t rule it out completely. Anytime you get into this time of year with instability in the shear and we’re dealing with thunderstorms like we are, then we can’t rule it out. It’s best to stay weather aware,” said Bowers.
Temperatures will cool down into the 60s Sunday and Monday, but then they warm back up again starting Tuesday.
