All of Indiana, except the far southeastern area, is in a slight risk zone for severe weather on Friday, with damaging winds and large hail the main threats. Isolated tornadoes cannot be ruled out.

The entire state is in a slight risk zone for severe weather on Saturday, with damaging winds and large hail again the main threats. Tornadoes will also be possible.

"As of right now, it looks as if the best chance of severe storms would be Saturday night as the cold front comes through," said StormTeam 6 meteorologist Todd Klaassen.

The severe weather threat will end with the passage of a cold front late Saturday.

A much calmer, cooler weather pattern will set up for Indiana beginning on Sunday, with less humidity and highs in the 70s.
