INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) - The rainfall of the past week has been the result of a series of storm systems moving through the Midwest. Central Indiana has seen more than 4 inches of rain in the past week, southern Indiana has seen rainfall totals close to 6 inches. In addition, 21 tornadoes ripped through the state on April 19 — three of those hit in Central Indiana.
There is a slight risk of severe thunderstorms in Central Indiana later Tuesday. Damaging wind, large hail, and isolated tornadoes are all threats. The weather pattern Wednesday will be similar. Pockets of heavy rain with the chance of severe storms are expected again. The current system should move out Thursday morning.
The extended outlook shows another storm system moving in late Saturday and Sunday. This will give us a chance for more un-needed rain. The good news is that after the weekend storm system, it looks like we will get a chance to dry out. Currently it looks like we will see dry weather Monday through Thursday of next week.
The wet pattern won't go away completely. We could see another round of rain and storms by the end of next week.
