  • Late season push of summer heat before cooler times

Drying Out Sunday…It was a wet and stormy night across central IN, including locally hefty rainfall totals (some neighborhoods picked up more than 2″).  We’ve been dealing with widespread soaking rain across central IN through the morning, but as we progress into the afternoon, most concentrated rain will remain east of the city and on into Ohio.  Scattered showers will remain possible until the cold front presses through the region tonight.

High pressure will build overhead Sunday and supply increasing sunshine and a pleasant second half of the weekend.  Lower humidity will promote overnight lows into the upper 50s to open the week.

A secondary (weak) front may yield an isolated to widely scattered shower Tuesday, but the bigger story will be late season heat building to close the week.  Highs will approach the 90 degree mark by Friday as a big ole ridge expands across the region.

Longer term, a significant cold front looms just beyond the current forecast period that will offer up thunderstorms and a big blast of fall-like air to close the month…

Upcoming 7-Day Precipitation Forecast:

  • Snowfall: 0.00″
  • Rainfall: 1.50″ – 2.00″
