storms, heavy rainfall possible this weekend


You don’t have to be directly struck by lightning. There are other ways you can get hit, which is why you should never underestimate a thunderstorm.


Some good and bad news: Indianapolis residents should expect cooler, drier weather with a chance of heavy rainfall and storms throughout the weekend.

There’s a 50% chance of rain and thunderstorms Saturday, according to the National Weather Service. The bad weather would most likely begin at 4 p.m. and continue into the night, said weather service meteorologist Kacie Hoover. 

But a high-pressure system moving east will give the area a break from the hot, humid weather seen this past week, Hoover said.

“Typically, high pressure will give us drier weather since there’s less instability under those conditions, but some pop-up storms are still possible when it’s hot and humid,” Hoover said.

Saturday’s forecast includes a high of 88 degrees around 3 p.m. Temperatures will drop to 68 degrees tonight. Sunday’s high is 83 degrees with a low of 63 degrees.

There is also a chance of hail and damaging winds in some western parts of Indiana, but Hoover said it’s not likely to hit Indianapolis.
