Rain and storms Wednesday and a cool down on the way

INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. --Good Wednesday afternoon! We're tracking a cold front that was located from Texas north to Michigan at the 5 p.m. hour. This cold front is slated to move into Indianapolis between about 11 p.m. and 2 a.m. Ahead of the front, we're expecting some showers and possible a few thunderstorms. There's not a lot of instability in central Indiana but we can't entirely rule out a thunderstorm this evening.


The best timing for rain in Indy will be from 4 p.m. into the early overnight hours. Rainfall amounts generally look light with most areas seeing less than 0.10 inches. However, if you get under a heavier shower or t-storm you may see 0.25 inches of rainfall.



Thursday morning will bring a cloudy sky a few lingering showers east. Otherwise, we'll see a decrease in cloud cover and lighter winds in the afternoon.


Temperatures will be in the low 50s to start the day with highs in the low 60s Thursday. Temperatures will jump back to the mid to upper 70s over the weekend. There's a slight chance of a sprinkle on Saturday and a few showers or t-storms are possible on Sunday. Saturday will be breezy.



We're keeping our eye on next week's weather too. Record high minimums and record maximums could be broken as temperatures get to the 80s. Tuesday looks to be very windy and warm with the potential for thunderstorms. We'll have to see how the data comes together. Right now, it's possible a strong low-pressure system moves through sparking a couple of severe storms. We'll be watching! --Danielle Dozier
