Happy Fall! We are definitely going to be feeling like fall after this evening. Right now, a cold front is moving through the state, bringing some thunderstorms with it, potentially even some severe ones to the Northeastern part of the state. Even so, the SPC has issued a SLIGHT RISK (2 out of 5) for parts of the state and much of Northwestern Ohio. There is a MARGINAL RISK (1 out of 5) for most of Indiana down to Alabama and Arkansas. A SVERE THUNDERSTORM WATCH has been issued for Jay, Blackford, Grant, and Wayne counties until 9pm EDT, including parts Ohio and Michigan as well. The main threat this afternoon and evening is damaging winds and small hail with these thunderstorms, but an isolated tornado cannot be ruled out either. Keep weather aware this afternoon!
The rest of the weekend will be pleasant and much cooler, thanks to that cold front mentioned above. Temperatures will drop into the 40s tonight, and won’t come back above the mid 50s at least through the weekend. Mostly sunny tomorrow once the storms and additional clouds move out through the morning. Mostly clear tomorrow evening, with temperatures dropping at night into the mid 30s. More clouds return on Sunday, but temperatures remain about like they were Saturday. All in all, shaping up to be a good fall weekend, once the storms move out tonight!
