WARMER AND MORE HUMID

Friday is a transition day – warmer and much more humid air makes a push toward the state starting Friday night, igniting storm clusters that are to ride the jet stream into the state.

Storm clusters will roam the state through Monday and at times a few gusty/severe stormy spells are possible. The main threat will be damaging winds. SPC has included a portion of Indiana in a ‘slight risk’ as early as Saturday.
