Heavy Storms Increasing This Afternoon


A slow-moving front, muggy air, and daytime heating offer optimism for greater coverage of much-needed rain with heavy storms this evening.

While we don't envision widespread severe storms... very heavy rain rates, frequent lightning, gusty wind, a possibly some nickle-sized hail accompanies storms today and this evening. Please monitor radar closely and be prepared to move indoors if you hear thunder.

Some backyards get a decent drink of water due to high-moisture content in the air mass over Central Indiana. Some half-inch to inch-plus amounts are in play. This is welcome news with many areas in a 3"+ rainfall deficit the past four weeks.
