Update: All warnings have expired.

INDIANAPOLIS, Ind.– We’ll have a slight risk for severe storms west of US 31 this evening.

The main threats will be lightning, small hail and gusty straight-line winds. The storms may cause delays in semi-state football contests this evening, before the rain tapers off after 9 p.m. Indianapolis set a record high of 75 degrees today, breaking the old record of 73 set back in 1941.

A strong cold front is moving this way and temperatures will be much colder for the weekend, a few flurries are possible north of Lafayette on Saturday. Temperatures will fall below freezing Sunday morning and a hard freeze is possible Monday morning.

See a timeline below of when the storms will move through the state.
