Heat and more storms in the weekend forecast


Storms with heavy rain, lightning and damaging winds moved through central Indiana late Friday.  These storms brought 3-5 inches of rain and dangerous flash flooding.  Water may still be rising overnight and flooding is hard to see at night.  It is a good idea to take extra care when you travel Friday night through early Saturday.  Our rivers will remain high and under flood warnings for several days.

There will some dry hours on Saturday, as the heat builds.  High temperatures will be in the range of 90-95 and heat index values will be 100-110.  A heat advisory is in effect for the state on Saturday.

We are expecting some dry hours, but a few storms will be possible Saturday afternoon and evening.  Any storm that develops may contain more heavy rain.  If you have outdoor plans, you can check Live Doppler 13 Radar on your phone with the SkyTrak13 Weather app.  There will be some dry hours on Sunday too, with highs in the lower and middle 90s.  More scattered storms are possible later in the day.  There is a slight risk for severe weather on Sunday.  Here is the latest timing of those storm chances this weekend.  There will be updates to the timing and placement of the storms so check back for updates.

The storm chances will end early Monday.  Right now we have a few dry days in the forecast for next week.  We hope this dry pattern materializes.  This July is now the 3rd wettest on record, with over 11 inches of rain in Indianapolis.
