INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. --Good Friday afternoon! It's been a warm and humid day with thunderstorms across central Indiana. The storms will continue to pop up through this Friday evening. Some of them may be strong with heavy rain, frequent cloud-to-ground lightning, small hail, and strong winds of 40-45 mph. Rainfall amounts may range from 0.50 to 1 inch with locally higher amounts in training thunderstorms. While the severe weather threat is low, a funnel cloud cannot be ruled out.

HRRR Reflectivity

Morning lows were in the 60s across the region and Indy fell to 69 degrees. This is the first time the city has fell below 70 degrees in nearly 11 days! The last time there was this long of a streak was June 28 to July 19, 2012.

Morning Lows

Most of the storms will weaken after sunset with the lack of daytime heating, however a stray shower is possible across northern Indiana overnight.  Saturday morning will bring areas of fog. Once the fog lifts, we'll see a mix of sun and clouds with another chance of afternoon t-storms. The same will be forecast for Sunday with highs in the mid-80s.
