Rain and thunderstorm action started last night and continues to move across the state today. Additional rain are likely in the .25”-.75” range, not including the overnight moisture. A few heavier thunderstorms are still possible this morning, but really have run out of gas in the overnight. Action should be exiting the eastern part of the state by early afternoon.
Dry tonight and through most of tomorrow. Tomorrow afternoon clouds and moisture starts to build back in from the SW ahead of our next system. Rains can begin in earnest overnight Friday night. Then we see rains Saturday, Sunday and early Monday. The heaviest day of rain likely is Sunday. All told, we still are keeping rains in the 1-3.5” range, with coverage at 100%.
No new precipitation expected next Tuesday. Wednesday looks dry north of I-70, but we could see another wave of action work into southern Indiana Wednesday afternoon into Thursday. This would be from I-70 south. Rain totals can be .25”-.75, with coverage at 80% of the southern half of the state. WE dry down again for Friday into the weekend. That means that northern Indiana may be able to put together dry days back to back form Tuesday through Saturday. But, southern Indiana (south of I-70) will have an interruption Wednesday-Thursday.
High pressure remains in control to start the extended period. We still are watching for some half to 1.5” rains around the 9th-10th-11th…although models have been reluctant to stick with a good timing solution.
Temps still normal to above normal today tomorrow and the weekend, but we get chilly to start next week. Temps may be a good 10 degrees below normal for Monday-Tuesday. But, then the rest of the week next week we should see temps start to climb back to normal and above normal levels.
