An active period of weather is in store for Indiana, with a temperature roller coaster in the forecast. There is some potential for severe weather this afternoon and evening as a warm front lifts across the area, bringing the potential for quite a bit of moisture with warmer temps. Most of the rainfall this afternoon and evening will fall north of I-70, but new models are showing more rain than initially expected falling south of I-70, so it’s a good idea to keep an eye on the weather across most of the state. The severe weather risk includes large hail, damaging winds, and even the potential for some tornado development. As the system finally begins to move away, it will then be followed by much colder air, bringing in rainy and windy conditions on Thursday. Winds on Thursday will crank up to near 40 mph in spots and temps will fall as the afternoon goes along. Some snowflakes could mix in with rain on Thursday night. Friday morning will start the day chilly, and Friday night will bring the potential for frost before warmer temperatures return Saturday.

The extended forecast is showing a possible weather system moving into Indiana around the 11th and 12th, possibly bringing .5” of rain to the state. Another potential system may show up around the 15th and 16th and leave behind .25-.75” of moisture.

The forecast for temps ahead after this end of the week cooldown looks to be normal to above normal for Indiana.
