INDIANAPOLIS — Indianapolis and most of central Indiana end a historically dry streak on Monday. 

No, it doesn't mean the drought will be over but for the first time since Aug. 19, most areas should get over a tenth of an inch of rain.

That 40-day streak is the driest on record during that time in Indianapolis, and it ties for the fourth longest streak of consecutive days with less than a tenth of inch of rain.

The .04" official rainfall at NWS Indianapolis is over 4" below average from Aug. 19 - Sept. 27.

Rain is likely Monday morning into midday, along with much colder temperatures compared to the highs near 80° on Sunday. 

Widespread rain ends west-to-east by 3 p.m. Monday with temperatures in the 50s much of the time steady rain is falling.

We'll be on frost watch Friday and Saturday mornings when temperatures could drop well into the 30s area wide.
