Severe wind threat has ended for now…flooding threat continues this morning after back to back days of heavy rain in spots! Look for the steadier rain to ease this morning and breaks of dry weather this afternoon with highs in the upper 70s and lower 80s. Another round of severe weather is possible later today into the overnight!
I do expect a break in rain for early afternoon in some locations with the threat of more severe weather coming this evening…timeframe for now looks to be between 7pm and midnight…Jennifer will have more on this by afternoon as we get closer to tipoff for Pacers game and storm initiation…
SLIGHT RISK OF SEVERE WEATHER TONIGHT will pertain to damaging winds, larger-sized hail and more local flooding…
Today: Heavy morning rain eases…breaks in rain, muggy and breezy High: 77
Tonight: Storms redevelop with severe threat, more flooding Low: 65
Sunday: Breezy and less humid with a spotty afternoon shower High: 74
Monday: Partly cloudy, nice but cooler High: 70
Tuesday: Partly cloudy, dry and pleasant High: 73
Wednesday: Turning cloudy with showers possible High: 74
