Today is a day you'll want to be "Weather Aware". A squall line with strong-severe storms will be possible this afternoon and evening. Prior to the arrival of those storms we'll see record high temperatures and breezy conditions.  We'll reach 73 today. The old record is 71 set back in 2000. A few hints of sunshine and even a passing shower will be possible before 2 p.m., but the main severe window is 2-9 p.m.

But a good chunk is in an ENHANCED risk, which is a step above a SLIGHT. Indianapolis is included in the Enhanced risk.

Our primary threat, should storms become severe, are damaging wind gusts. We could also see an isolated tornado.

We are not expecting any accumulation with the snow showers on Saturday. This cool down will be short lived as we're back to the 60s with rain early next week.
