INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) — The rain from this weekend has definitely helped some of us with the drought situation. Indianapolis is still unfortunately sitting over two inches below normal for this month and the year. Muncie definitely saw an improvement after being over four inches below normal for the year only a couple of weeks ago.
We got some more help today, though just a bit with most areas in central Indiana received under a quarter inch of rain for today.
High temperatures reached the mid 70s to low 80’s for Sunday afternoon. Some areas to the north like Kokomo were slightly rain cooled.
More rain is possible as scattered showers and storms will continue through the late evening hours. Most of the rain should be out by after 10 p.m.
Lows will dip into the mid 60’s with the outlying areas slipping towards the 60° mark before daybreak Monday.
An isolated shower is possible to the north in the early morning hours, but most of us will stay dry.
We will continue to remain below average for this time of the year with the high temperature. We will reach near 80° for the high by the afternoon.
Isolated to scattered showers and storms will be possible during the afternoon hours. No severe weather is expected, but locally heavy rainfall is possible.
Rain chances will remain low for us throughout the week with isolated instances possible. This will be a good time to get some lawn work done.
We look to creep into the upper 80s by Thursday as temperatures will return to being above average for the first time since this previous week. Afterwards, we will cool off a little bit next Friday.
As mentioned before, we look to remain mostly dry throughout the week. However, better storm chances look to return by next weekend. Temperatures will also back off for us into the low 80s and eventually into the mid 70s by the next new work week with continued storm chances.
