STATEWIDE–Much of Indiana will be seeing rain over the next few days, says the National Weather Service in Indianapolis.
It will start to move in Thursday afternoon, but that will just be the start of it.
“The more widespread rain will probably Friday afternoon into Saturday night. We’re looking at anywhere from 1-2 inches in the Indy metro area and 2-3 inches up near Lafayette and Kokomo by the time it’s all said and done,” says National Weather Service Indianapolis meteorologist Chad Swain.
People in the southern part of the state should be concerned too, Swain says.
“There’s already river flooding down south and this rain will definitely prolong it, if not make it worse. They could get to half an inch to an inch and a half depending on where you are,” Swain continued.
The wind will also be something to watch out for once the weekend arrives.
“There will be breezy conditions Saturday night into Sunday with wind gusts around 35 mph. That’s basically all over the state,” says Swain.
Temperatures will be in the 60s and 70s Friday and Saturday, but then temperatures cool into the 50s for Sunday. Swain says most areas will be dry by Sunday afternoon.
