3-26-20 ES Deicing: Multiple chances for storms through Saturday. MG.

IN Video:

Here is a look at simulated radar from 9 AM this morning through 1 PM Sunday. Multiple rounds of rain/ storms will be possible beginning this afternoon.  Storms will be possible this afternoon, especially north of I-70.  Threat for rain/ storms shifts south a bit into tomorrow morning.  A warm front lifts to the north Friday into Saturday morning, brining more rain / storm chances across the state.  A cold front then passes the state late Saturday into Sunday morning with yet another shot of rain / storms.  There is some severe potential with these storms, especially those on Saturday where the instability will be the greatest.  Please watch video for complete details.  

Here is a look at preferred rainfall totals through Friday morning.  0.25″ -0.5″ will be possible across northern/ central IN.  Some model solutions are slightly south of the solution shown.  Please watch video from complete details.  

Here is a look at preferred rainfall amounts through the weekend.  Especially north of I-70, amounts of 1″ – 2″ are going to be possible.  Heavier rainfall due to the warm front will be possible north of I-70 where some spots may see 2+” of accumulation and could lead to some flash flooding issues.  More detail in the video.

Aside from the potential for strong storms and heavy rainfall, we are also looking at some breezy conditions that develop later this weekend.  As the low pressure system approaches Saturday Evening, the winds will really begin to pick up.  These windier conditions are expected to last through Sunday as well.  Here is a look at the sustained winds around 9 PM Saturday.  Sustained winds around 10 – 20 MPH will be possible with some gust of 30 – 40+ MPH.  

The windy conditions continue into Sunday.  Here is a look at the sustained winds on Sunday.  Model shown below is likely a bit overdone with these wind speeds but sustained winds of 15 + MPH will be possible with gust of 35+ MPH.
