The forecast continues to look wet for Indy 500 qualifying today and tomorrow. Showers are likely this afternoon, with a few thunderstorms possible. Rain amounts across central Indiana will be generally between 0.2 and 0.4 inches, but amounts could be higher with thunderstorms. No severe weather is expected. With a very moist atmosphere, a chance of showers will linger overnight. Most of the showers will probably come in the evening. There may be a break in the rain chances through Sunday morning before showers increase again Sunday afternoon. Like today, showers and thunderstorms appear likely to interfere with qualifying. Our IMS radar link at the top of the page will be available and updating every few minutes so you can check on the current rain situation.
