INDIANAPOLIS — High winds could be possible overnight into Sunday. 

Meteorologist Marc Dahmer with the National Weather Service Indianapolis said the winds will begin to pick up late this afternoon into the evening. Dahmer says winds will reach speeds of 15 to 20 mph before midnight. 

However, wind gusts can reach speeds of 40 to 50 mph overnight into Sunday morning. 

Dahmer said that after a frontal boundary pushes through tonight there is a potential for some rain showers and thunderstorms. He says the main threat is strong straight line winds. 

If you have to drive tonight, Dahmer recommends staying off the highways, and finding a path through city streets where there are homes and buildings to block the wind. 

He says if you are out driving to be aware of power lines and trees that could potentially fall over.

If you see a power line or tree down make sure to call your local authorities so they can get the area cleared.
