STATEWIDE-All areas south of Indianapolis are under a “slight risk” of severe weather Friday afternoon, according to the National Weather Service.
A “slight risk” means that scattered severe storms are possible but typically are short-lived and not widespread.
“The main thing we’re worried about today is damaging winds. There may be some small hail and we can’t rule out a tornado, but the main threat is damaging winds,” said Andrew White, meteorologist with the National Weather Service in Indianapolis.
Many places on Thursday got between an inch and an inch and a half of rain. Some cities and towns in Indiana have been getting more rain Friday.
“It is definitely much needed with how far behind we were. Most areas will get a good soak of rain, which will help the farmers with their crops,” said White.
White expects the threat of severe weather to be done by late Friday night.
“We’ll get a nice break this weekend, so we’ll have lots of sun Saturday and Sunday. Temperatures will only be in the 80s, so it will be a very pleasant weekend. It will be a great weekend to get outside,” said White.
