Last Updated: 42 days ago
INDIANAPOLIS - A storm system that will sweep into Indiana later this week could threaten trick or treat activities across the region and could bring some strong to severe thunderstorms.
Temperatures will warm up the first half of the week, with temperatures around normal on Monday and Tuesday before highs climb to near 70, well above normal, on Wednesday.
Scattered showers will move into the area on Wednesday ahead of a cold front that will near the state.
On Thursday, the storm system will move through the region, with warm temperatures but an increased risk of showers and thunderstorms.
"Thursday, we could be dealing with some strong thunderstorms," said StormTeam 6 meteorologist Todd Klaassen.
It's still early, so the forecast could change, but the timing doesn't look good for Halloween evening activities. Up to 2 inches of rain could fall in central Indiana.
"You'll want to add an umbrella or some kind of cover to your costume, because you can expect showers and storms throughout the day," StormTeam 6 meteorologist Ashley Brown said.
