Heating up

Wet pattern continues

Posted By · July 9, 2013 at 6:47 pm

keyframe266Look for more rain tonight, especially north of Indy where there is a greater risk of severe weather.

Scattered thunderstorms are also likely across central Indiana on Wednesday. We’ll have a slight risk for severe storms with lightning, 1″ diameter hail and 50-60 mph wind gusts. Flash flooding will also be a concern with storms capable of dumping 1-2″ of rain.

A cold front moving through will cause the rain. After the front passes, temperatures and humidity will drop.
