Warm temperatures at last, but more rain could follow this weekend

Scattered rain has already been seen on SkyTracker Radar this afternoon, and more rain will develop into the late afternoon and evening hours.

Morning commuters will still want that winter jacket as lows dip to the 30s. Many locations make it to 80-degrees to end the work week! Afternoon temperatures should reach the lower 80's, marking the warmest of spring so far but not hitting the record of 86°, back in 1941.

Outlook for Sunday to Tuesday: Cloudier on Sunday with strong southeast winds and some showery rain. For the moment, forecasters believe the worst of the weather, which could include hail and strong winds, will be to the north and east of us. Mostly sunny, with a high at 77. There's a chance, in fact, that the western parts of town get little or no rain at all. Sunday's high is expected to be in the low 50s.

Wind gusts on the order of 30 to 35 miles per hour will be quite common across the area tomorrow, and a wind advisory will likely be issued.

This system has the potential to produce very heavy rain from Sunday evening through early Monday morning.

The storm system will move into the Plains and Mississippi Valley on Friday afternoon, bringing severe storms with damaging winds, hail and tornadoes from the Gulf Coast to Iowa.

Tonight: Mostly clear with lows in the 20's. A strong low pressure system centered early Friday over southeast Nebraska moves to central IN by Sunday morning. A RED FLAG WARNING is in effect for Franklin County until 8PM for the dry and windy conditions. That will produce areas of Saturday morning fog. Potential hazards include downpours, lightning, and damaging winds.
