Hurricane Laura to bring some impact into Indiana; cooler temps this weekend

Hurricane Laura weakened as it made landfall in the Gulf Coast Wednesday night.


Then, it will track north, weakening as it moves over land, but still bringing wind, rain and flooding.

Meteorologist Marcus Bailey says Indiana could see some remnants this weekend, but don't expect anything too crazy.



He says the areas along the Ohio River could still see an inch or two of rain, but central Indiana will see scattered rain chances Friday and Saturday, and shouldn't total more than an inch.


Bailey adds that once the rain moves out, we'll see a break from the heat.


"Once we clear all that rain out, which we expect to happen at some point Saturday, you're going to get much more refreshing air," he said. "You're looking at highs in the mid-80s to end the work week with those rain chances. Then lower 80s on Saturday, and then, as of right now, Sunday looks wonderful. The sun comes back out, and temperatures may not even hit 80 degrees."
