With 1.84" of rain recorded in Indianapolis yesterday, we broke a rainfall record for March 9th beating out the previous record of 1.61".

Winds will relax some this afternoon but will remain breezy, sustaining speeds from 15 to 25 mph out of the west. Gusts to 25 to 30 mph. Afternoon highs will only climb into the mid 40s with a gradual clearing sky.

The combination of a saturated ground and 20-30 mph wind gusts could still pose a threat of downed trees and isolated power outages this afternoon.

Monday and Tuesday will be mostly sunny and dry with seasonal temperatures in the mid-to-upper 40s.

Rain is possible on Wednesday with windy conditions and highs near 60 degrees.

Thursday will be unsettled with thunderstorms likely, mainly in the morning with very warm highs in the upper 70s before falling behind a cold front during the second half of the day.

Be prepared to grab the coat for your St. Patrick's Day weekend plans. A few light showers, possibly mixed with flurries, are possible Friday with highs in the lower 40s. We stay cool but mainly dry next Saturday with highs remaining in the 40s through next weekend.
