Rain and thunderstorms return with cooler weather set to move in

INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. --Good Tuesday afternoon! It's been a rather cloudy but warm day in central Indiana with temperatures in the 70s. Winds have been gusty and they are expected to relax later this evening with the passage of a cold front.

The cold front will also be bringing some rain and possibly a couple of thunderstorms to parts of central Indiana. Model data still suggests that there is the potential for an isolated severe storm. Any storm that happens to develop may rotate so we're watching the radar carefully. The area that should be on-guard for the severe threat will be near Indianapolis and points to the south around sunset and into the early evening. The overall widespread severe threat is low and the threat should decrease further into the evening with lack of instability.

Cooler air will move in behind the front with lows in the upper 50s by Wednesday morning. The winds will be light out of the east, northeast through the day. Showers and thunderstorms will be scattered about central Indiana, moving in from the south Wednesday afternoon and evening.  There's also a chance of an isolated severe storm Wednesday evening, especially south of Indianapolis. Temperatures are forecast in the low to mid-70s.
