Flooding, Severe Threat Today - live Doppler 13 Weather Blog

Published:

While many of us will experience quite a bit of dry time today, another round of thunderstorms will initiate this afternoon, mainly after 3 p.m. for areas along and south of the I-70 corridor.

The severe threat will remain mainly south through the early evening.

These storms have the potential of producing damaging wind gusts and the southern half of the state has been placed under a level 2 of 5 from the Storm Prediction Center for severe weather coverage.

Keep in mind with excessive rainfall we've received over the past day and a half, widespread flooding will be an ongoing concern.

Never drive through a flooded roadway. Always turn around and find an alternate route.

The severe threat ends this evening as the sun sets and storms exit east.

Temperatures will be able to climb into the upper 70s to near 80 degrees.

The wet and stormy pattern will continue daily through next week as a boundary stalls right through central Indiana. Scattered storms look likely at times on Monday with highs near 80.

Widely scattered storms will be possible on Tuesday with storms likely again Wednesday and Thursday.

Many locations could easily pick up another 2-3" of rainfall through the week. Be prepared to encounter areas of flooding, especially during stormy times.

Rain Timeline - Live Doppler 13 Weather Blog

Published:

We have lots of dry time today before our next weather system moves in tonight.

Clouds will be on the increase through the day as temperatures recover to the upper 70s.

A cluster of showers and storms will develop in the evening, mainly after 5 PM in southeast Indiana as more widespread showers push in from the northwest as a cold front approaches.

Rain becomes widespread overnight with scattered showers likely through the first half of the day Thursday -- including the morning commute. Plan ahead to allow extra time due to wet roads for your morning drive.

Gusty winds and much cooler air will accompany this rain Thursday. We continue to forecast "high" temperatures in the low to mid 60s Thursday.

This forecast "high" of in Indy is closer to the average low (61) for this time of year. Wind gusts up to 30 mph from the northwest.

The rain exits in the late afternoon with a late day clearing.

The northern half of the state is expected to see the most rainfall out of this system with rainfall potential up to 1" in spots.

Look for less than half an inch elsewhere through Central Indiana.

Afternoon a cool start with temps in the upper 40s, Friday looks fantastic if you're a fan of sunshine and highs 72-75°.

Friday's dry weather won't be long-lived. An increasing Muggy Meter returns for the weekend. Daytime heating combined with a stalling frontal boundary triggers scattered showers and storms Saturday and Father's Day.

Not all day rains, but definitely requires radar watching for outdoor plans. As of right now -- Saturday looks to have more dry time than Sunday.

This more summer-like weather pattern with daily rain and storm chances continues through the start of next week.



Coolest Night In Three Weeks

Published:
Updated:

A stiff northwesterly wind is doing its job and dropping the Muggy Meter significantly over the past 24 hours... with dewpoints 20-30° colder than Sunday evening.

The Muggy Meter remains comfortable much of this week which means you can give the A/C a break and let nature cool your house.

The combination of a clear sky, calming wind later tonight, and that much drier air... leads to the coolest lows since May 21st.

We're expecting most areas to wake to lows in the upper 40s to near 50. A light jacket may be needed early Tuesday but the warm up tomorrow should be rather quick for full June sun. Afternoon highs near 80 and it's a candidate for pick-of-the-week.

Clouds quickly return Wednesday but likely have more bark than bite until toward sunset. A low pressure system is modeled to intensify near Central Indiana bringing an increase in rain and possibly thunderstorms Wednesday night into Thursday.

Thursday will be rather cool for mid-June and "high" temperatures may not climb out of the 50s in some areas. In fact our forecast "high" of 64 in Indy is closer to the average low (61) for this time of year and may be too "warm."

Wind-whipped showers are likely with clouds hanging tough much of the day.

Clouds clear Thursday night and temperatures again nose-dive into the 40s Friday morning. Friday looks fantastic if you're a fan of sunshine and highs near 70. It's also a perfect weather script for those attending Zoobilation Friday evening at the Indianapolis Zoo... an event that sometimes features a rather uncomfortable Muggy Meter. That doesn't look to be the case this year.

We're back to an unsettled set up over Father's Day weekend with scattered showers and storms - Sean Ash



Areas Of Heavy Rain Next 3 To 6 Hours

Published:
Updated:

Downpours continue to impact areas of Central Indiana with rain rates of 1"+ per hour.

Street flooding is likely in the path of heaviest cells that have set up along/east of I-65. Columbus, Shelbyville, Seymour, and Greensburg are in this zone.

Use caution if traveling this evening. Showers linger into midday Monday before drier air arrives Monday night. This is the first of two cool air shots before next weekend and sets the stage for a cooler than avearge week.



Downpours Likely And Flooding Possible This Evening

Published:
Updated:

The combination of a nearly stationary upper low in western Indiana, tropical air, and slow-moving cells... lead to localized flooding and narrow areas of 2"+ rainfall before midnight.

Please be careful if you get in these torrential rain rates with streets becoming flooded quickly.

Coverage and intensity diminishes around midnight with a period of drizzle and locally dense fog expected overnight. Clouds and showers linger into Monday morning before peeks of sun emerge in the afternoon with highs near 70.

Less humid air arrives Monday night and lows drop to near 50 Tuesday morning with a clear sky and northwesterly breeze. Tuesday looks fantastic with sunshine and highs in the upper 70s.

Another storm system arrives mid-week with clouds and showers Wednesday into Thursday morning. This is followed by another shot of unseasonably cool air.

Highs only in the 60s Thursday with lows possibly in the 40s Friday morning. Friday is pleasant before yet another chance of rain arrives Saturday into Sunday morning - Sean Ash
