SOUTHERN INDIANA--There is a chance of severe thunderstorms for some areas south of I-70 in Indiana Wednesday afternoon and evening, according to the National Weather Service.
“We have a slight chance of rain south of the I-70 corridor, but we’re expecting most areas to stay dry. There could be brief, heavy rain. Gusty winds are also possible. Temperatures will also be in the mid-to-upper 90s again in most places,” said Cody Moore with the National Weather Service in Indianapolis.
The Storm Prediction Center has the southern third of Indiana under a “marginal risk.” A marginal risk for severe weather means that isolated severe thunderstorms are possible but are limited in coverage, intensity, or duration.
“The main risk is the gusty winds which could reach 60 mph,” said Moore.
Moore doesn’t think there will be rain Thursday and Friday, but the front that moves in will help cool temperatures down on those days.
“Once the front pushes through, there won’t be another chance of rain until this weekend. Right now, there is a 20-30% chance of rain on Saturday. Sunday has the better chance of rain, where we have another strong front moving in,” said Moore.
Moore also expects temperatures to cool down early next week before warming back up again.
