Dry Days Arriving

Published:

We've gone from desperately needing rain to prevent furthering drought conditions to dealing with areas of flooding through Central Indiana.

For Indianapolis... (as of yesterday, Monday, June 11th) we've received 2.26". That takes us 0.68" over the "average" for so far this month and in nearly an inch surplus for the year-to-date rain.

Scattered showers continue to push through this afternoon but strong storms are not expected.

Evening plans are overall dry but with an isolated shower possible. Temperatures drop back through the 70s.

Rain clears overnight and skies remain mostly cloudy. A warm start to the day in the upper 60s with stray showers in the afternoon.

The showers are associated with a passing cold front. We'll first see rain drops in the northern tier of the state from Kokomo to Marion around lunchtime.

Scattered showers continue along the boundary into the afternoon -- here's 3pm. Temperatures still rebound into the mid 80s.

The front departs south in the early evening taking rain out with it and bringing in clearing skies.

Behind the front, much drier and cooler air arrives with temps falling into the upper 50s for Thursday morning.

The muggy meter looks great for us Thursday and Friday in the "comfortable" category. Looking ahead at the weekend -- prepare for the quick return of the heat and humidity.

We'll go from sunshine with highs in the mid to upper 80s Thursday and Friday to the lower 90s with isolated storms this weekend into early next week.
