It’s going to be a busy weekend with a couple of rounds of storms possible. The first round of storms should be mostly below severe criteria and

will roll through this morning and into the afternoon. At this point for the donut counties and Indianapolis it looks like we can expect to see rain as soon as about 8:30 being possible. This will last through the middle of the afternoon. Rain, gusty winds and frequent lightning should be expected as this cluster of storms slides through over the Noon hour.

The rain this morning is triggered by the return of heat and humidity. It’s a warm front that will temporarily sweep through the state. It will sweep back through tomorrow as a cold front. This is why we have a slight chance for severe weather according to the Storm prediction Center. Storms may begin to fire as soon as 9am in the morning, continuing throughout the rest of the afternoon. These storms will fire along and south of the front. This means that places north of I-70 may be storm free as soon as Noon. Places south of I-70 will have a longer day of storms. Storms will clear the state from the north moving south. Intensity will likely pick up as we head into the afternoon.

Finally there is another chance for storms and rain on Saturday for the southern third of the state. With the data coming in this morning I think we will see the Day 3 (Monday) risk go away. They normally only update day 3 maps once a day so it may not change today.
