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.
