We have just about everything happening in the weather department over the next 48 hours! Today we have a high chance of tying an old record of 73 set back in 1941! It will be breezy but dry through about 4 p.m.


Thunderstorms, in the form of a squall line will start moving into our western counties by the 5pm drive. Futureview has that stormy weather arriving in Indy by 7 p.m.


Indy and points west are in a MARGINAL risk for severe storms tonight.  The squall line will be stronger across western Indiana and weaken as it moves east. Damaging wind gusts are the primary threat should storms become severe.


While this is a MUCH smaller chance, we can't rule it out. The Storm Prediction Center has also included western Indiana in a 2% chance for an isolated tornado. Our primary threat remains the damaging wind gusts.


We turn SHARPLY colder this weekend. Temperatures will drop over 30 degrees! Wind Advisories may be posted for Saturday due to 40 mph wind gusts. Those wind gusts will produce wind chills in the 20s with temperatures falling throughout the day. Sunday will be dry, partly sunny and breezy.


There will be the chance for flurries mainly north of I-70 by Saturday evening. No accumulation is expected.


For tailgaters on Sunday, prior to the Colts game, expect cold, breezy and dry conditions! Wind chills will be in the 20s downtown Sunday morning.


Looking ahead to Thanksgiving--it will be dry, but we stay cool.
