Wet and Windy Thursday Ahead!

Today may be so windy, the umbrella does you little to no good!  But the combination of wind and rain will make for a miserable day outside.  Hang in there!

*Record Rain! Yesterday’s rain total of 1.33” broke the daily precip record for Oct. 19th of 1.14 set in 1877.  Our storm total so far (as of 2am) for Indy is 1.91” and we could get another ¼-1/2” through this evening before the rain tapers

 *Wind: A Wind Advisory is in effect ‘til 6pm for all of Central Indiana.  We could see gusts out of the Northwest/West 40-45 mph

 *Cool: Today will be the 3rd straight day with highs only in the 40s.  Our average high is 64!

 *Drying Out: We should see the last showers move out tonight paving the way for a mainly dry Friday and Saturday.  Some more showers (nothing too heavy) may move in late Sunday.

 *Frost Potential:  I have a feeling the showers and clouds may not clear ‘til the wee hours tomorrow morning…that may mean temps don’t quite drop low enough tomorrow morning for a frost.  But Saturday morning, with clear skies and light winds…a FROST still looks likely.

 *Weekend: Highs in the 60s.  Dry Saturday, Showers Develop Late Sunday
