Thunderstorms bring small hail and cold air funnels to central Indiana

INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. --Good Wednesday afternoon! We're tracking showers and a few thunderstorms around central Indiana. While no storm has been severe, some have produced some small hail and cold air funnels. Cold air funnels typically form in cooler air masses and rarely come in contact with the ground. We'll be tracking this threat through the rest of the afternoon.


Scattered showers will continue overnight with patchy fog and lows in the low 50s. Winds will remain light out of the north, northwest at 5-10 mph.


Thursday's highs will be in the upper 60s with scattered showers and thunderstorms.  We're tracking a cut-off low pressure, or a low pressure that is cut off from the main branch of the jet stream. This will bring cooler weather to central Indiana as well as rainfall. You may see 0.25 to 0.50 inches of rain under heavier thunderstorms.


The low pressure will finally move out and we'll dry out and warm up through next week. The start of October will bring highs in the 80s by Tuesday. --Danielle Dozier
