STATEWIDE–A cold front will move into Indiana starting Friday night and bring scattered storms into the weekend.

“Some of those could be severe. We are seeing the possibility of some damaging wind gusts, but for the most part, those storms should not be severe,” said Aaron Updike, meteorologist with the National Weather Service in Indianapolis.

Temperatures will still be in the upper 80s across Indiana even once the cold front comes through.

“We get another wave that comes through Saturday, Sunday, and into Monday. We’re seeing a chance of thunderstorms all the way through the holiday weekend,” said Updike.

Updike believes the rain across most of the state will be “pretty consistent” on Saturday.

“For Sunday and Monday, though, we’re looking at more periodical, scattered storms in the afternoons and evenings,” said Updike.

Updike says the state could use the rain. Almost all of Indiana is dealing with either “abnormally dry” or “drought-like” conditions.
