Fog continues to linger across a large portion of zone 1 this morning, but thankfully it’s not as dense as yesterday. Over the next couple of hours, the atmosphere will heat up and the fog will burn off. As it does the environment will warm and become somewhat unstable, this will allow for some isolated to scattered storms to develop.
A better threat of more concentrated storms may be across central Indiana this afternoon where a leftover surface boundary is in place. The storms look to develop after 1-2 pm this afternoon along the boundary. The main concern with these will be localized flooding associated with heavy rainfall.
Through the evening into the overnight, the activity will diminish and only a few isolated showers or a storm will remain. Rain chances will increase once again Saturday afternoon along and ahead of the cold front. Some isolated to widely scattered storms could develop after 1-2 pm Saturday afternoon across the forecast area.

However, better storm chances will be along the cold front as it moves across the area Saturday evening. Current timing would place storms in western Indiana around 7-8 PM, moving into the Indy metro around 9-10 pm, then into western, OH/Cincinnati around 1-2 am Saturday morning.

While a well-organized severe weather threat is not forecast, some of the storms could become strong to severe. Main threats will be isolated damaging winds, small hail, a couple isolated tornadoes, and heavy rain.

Behind the front, high pressure will build into the forecast area. This will bring in much cooler, drier air for Sunday and the start of next week. Highs to end the weekend into early next week will only be in the 70’s!
