Today is the last day of April and good riddance to it. With 8.59 inches of rain this was the 2nd wettest April in Indy weather history. Fortunately, we close the month on a dry and warm note, with an afternoon high of 81.This is a high temp more like June rather than April. Cooler and damp weather moves in by the end of the end of the work week and expect rain to be around for the Mini Marathon. Temperatures will be in the 40s for the festivities Saturday.
It is a mild, pleasant day so far, but it is April, so things will change later today. Rain in front of a cold front moves in this afternoon and is with us during the entire evening rush hour. As the rain ends early Wednesday morning, we will have picked up more than a half inch of rain.
After the front slides thru, temperatures drop and we will struggle to reach the low 50s tomorrow.
It could be worse…a strip of snow is falling in Kansas and Colorado today!
What a weekend! The Susan G. Komen race participants walked or ran in cold weather this morning, but later today, temperatures warm to 50 degrees, 15 degrees below normal.
Overall, the weather will cooperate with our many events this weekend, from the Little 500 to the Grand Prix at Purdue, from the Country Music Expo, to the Community Shred It Day at Channel 13.
Tonight, look for a Freeze Watch as temps drop to 33 and our Flood Warning looks like it will stay in place into next week.

A line of strong/severe storms will impact the entire region from now until 12am. There is a moderate risk of damaging wind gusts of 80mph+, and a possibility of strong tornadoes.

Look for only a couple of showers after our early morning downpours today. Despite the brisk start, we’ll warm up to the low 70s later today.
