STATEWIDE–Rain will fall sporadically Tuesday, but heavier amounts of rain are expected to fall Wednesday across central Indiana and southern parts of the state.
“There will be a bit of a break Tuesday afternoon and Tuesday evening, but then we’ll have more widespread rain into Wednesday perhaps continuing into Wednesday evening,” said Joe Nield, meteorologist with the National Weather Service in Indianapolis.
Central and southern portions of the state could get severe weather sometime Wednesday afternoon.
“The primary threat will be a widespread soaking rainfall that, on top of the rain we got over the weekend, could cause some minor flooding problems in some areas,” said Nield.
Nield says there will be a brief window Wednesday afternoon where there could be “instability.”
“If that instability can be realized and produce some thunderstorms, then that would be our highest threat time,” said Nield. “They could have some damaging winds.”
There is a marginal risk for severe weather across most of central and southern Indiana. A marginal risk means isolated severe storms are possible, with the threat of isolated damaging winds, small hail and maybe a tornado.
Nield says after Wednesday, the weather “dries out” for the next few days, including Thanksgiving.
“Once we get into early next week, we’ll see a cool off. Temperatures will drop into the 30s and 40s,” said Nield.
Snow has been falling recently in northern Indiana. That part of the state is also expected to get rain Wednesday, followed up by dry weather on Thanksgiving.
