INDIANAPOLIS – A few spotty showers this Friday with high temperatures back into the 70s today! Many will still see a mostly dry day. Then it’s on to the 80s this weekend!

Weekend weather snapshot

  • FRIDAY: Warmer than average spring day with spotty storms.
  • SATURDAY: Temperatures we don’t normally see until summer time! June 18th is when ‘normal’ high reaches 83° — and that’s what we have in our April 23rd forecast.
  • SUNDAY: Severe storm potential by the evening, especially north of I-70.
  • MONDAY: 20+ degree drop (temps fall to 50s in the afternoon!) So technically our highs will be right after midnight, then falling throughout the day.

Quick look at Friday

It’s going to start feeling like spring in full force here across Indiana. The spring showers will be present today, as well as high temperatures about 10 degrees above the normal of 66.

Severe weather potential Sunday

Early peak into Sunday: we could see some one-off stronger showers and thunderstorms. The Storm Prediction Center does have part of Indiana at a marginal (level 1) risk for severe weather. Timing would be Sunday evening. After the storms pass, colder air takes over once again in Indiana.

Big cool down next week

Enjoy the warmer air while we have it! Our pattern changes quite a bit as we start off next week. We’re in the warm section of air currently (on the left) then we move into the cooler pattern (right) by Monday!

7 day forecast

A warm front has brought rain showers and warmer weather to Indiana! We’ve been climbing about 10 degrees each day–and will continue to do so until we get to the weekend. High temperatures are expected to be in the low to mid 80s for both Saturday and Sunday!

7 day forecast

Earlier from the weather blog Friday morning:

Dense fog advisory

We started off Friday morning with reduced visibility. A dense fog advisory was in effect for some of our southeastern counties until 9 a.m. Visibility in the gray shaded counties were reduced to a quarter mile or less at times.

Spotty showers and isolated storms Friday

Most of the rain we see Friday will stay north of I-70. Early morning is likely to feature a heavier section of rain near Bloomington, and an isolated thunderstorm before 9 a.m. Throughout the day, you could run into a few spotty pockets of showers as early as 8 a.m. or late into the evening hours. The coverage will be very scattered in nature–we’re not expecting a big wash out by any means. This slide show below will show you what rain and cloud coverage looks like throughout the day:
