It won’t be as dreary or as cold this afternoon in central Indiana, and the second round of thunderstorms in one week is waiting Friday night.
A major storm system will organize in the West in the next 24 hours. First thing: a warm front moves up over the area later Thursday, perhaps bringing a stray sprinkle and lots of clouds. Temps will jump into the 60s Friday, and stay there through about sunrise Saturday. Ahead of the front, a risk of severe weather Friday evening and overnight, in the southern half of the state.
This shows computer-modeled temperatures at 6am Saturday, with the cooler air advancing behind the cold front from the west.
Saturday will be dry…but windy! Chills will be in the 20s.
