Scattered showers and thunderstorms will develop across Central Indiana this afternoon. Some storms may be severe along and south of I-70. The biggest threats will be damaging wind and large hail, along with heavy rain and lightning.
Highs will reach the upper 70s today.
The afternoon and evening will not be a washout, but you’ll need to check the radar before you head out for any outdoor plans.
This is a view of FutureTrak13 as we go into later today.
Tomorrow we should be mainly dry with just a slight chance of a shower or thunderstorm.
More of the same is coming our way Thursday, with shower and storm chances returning Friday. The holiday weekend doesn’t look like a washout and we will more than likely see more dry time than rain, we will keep you posted as we continue to forecast for the upcoming 4th of July.
Scattered showers and storms remain in the forecast this afternoon after a Monday morning with more record setting rain for the month of June.
Here’s a look at the rain totals through mid morning.
That puts us at the 7th wettest June on record for Indianapolis.
We could add to that total as we go into the afternoon. Highs will reach the mid 70s, below our normal high of 85.
More rain and isolated thunderstorms are expected to develop.
Tonight we have to keep rain chances in the forecast for the Indians game as temps remain cool.
The rain is expected to end by midnight, however, we’ll see the chance of a shower or storm at any time on Tuesday.
In the 7 day forecast, this wet pattern continues. As of now for Friday and Saturday holiday plans, I’d plan on isolated showers and thunderstorms. We will be fine tuning the forecast hour by hour as we get closer to the weekend.
Today Central Indiana will get a break from the rain, at least through early evening. Highs will reach the upper 70s to low 80s today with mostly sunny skies.
We’ll see an increase of clouds tonight, and a chance for storms return to the forecast.
Showers and storms will be with us on and off during the day on Monday. Temperatures Monday will be cool, with highs in the mid 70s. An isolated thunderstorm may be strong.
Through Tuesday up to 1″ of rain looks possible, a few areas under heavier thunderstorms could pick up up to 2″ of rain. We will continue to monitor the flooding concern.
River Flood Warnings are extensive and will remain up until further notice. Moderate flooding is likely and if you live in a flood prone region we recommend you keep track of river levels the next few days.
A daily chance for showers and thunderstorms remains in the 7 day forecast, however those chances become more isolated Friday and Saturday. We’ll keep you posted on the exact timing as you plan your Fourth of July festivities.
The heaviest rain has pushed out of Central Indiana, but lingering showers are still expected today. Standing water will continue to be an issue as much of Central Indiana picked up 1-3″+ of rain over the last 24 hours.
For the month of June, Indianapolis has picked up 8.06″ of rain making this the 8th wettest June on record so far.
The wettest June was back in 1875 with 12.21″ of rain. With more rain on the way before the end of the month, we could move up higher in the record books.
It will be a cool and breezy Saturday with highs struggling to hit 70 degrees with mostly cloudy skies and scattered showers through late afternoon.
Tonight skies clear and temps turn cool, falling into the mid 50s.
Sunday will be nice and sunny with highs in the upper 70s.
Our next chance for rain and storms returns Monday, and we have a daily chance for rain through Friday.
Heavy rain is on the way to Central Indiana, and a Flash Flood Watch is in effect until Saturday morning. Some areas could pick up 2-3″ of rain under the strongest storms.
We are also watching for the potential of severe weather south of I-70. Damaging wind, hail and isolated tornadoes are all possible. A greater risk of severe weather is south of Seymour and Bedford in the moderate risk area.
Highs will reach the mid 70s today.
Here’s how the rain will play out hour by hour on FutureTrak13.

Saturday will remain cool with highs only reaching the low 70s. Rain will be likely though early afternoon, we should start to dry out the later we head into the evening.

Highs will reach the mid 70s today, with activity picking up on the radar by late morning and midday.
Some storms in south central Indiana may be strong to severe.
However, flooding is a big concern for all of Central Indiana. In heavier storms 2-3″ of rain will be possible. That’s why a Flash Flood Watch has been issued from noon until Saturday morning.
From now through Saturday night, up to 2″ of rain is possible, and some areas may pick up more than that.
Saturday will be rainy and breezy.
The heaviest rain will fall in the morning, becoming more scattered for the afternoon as highs reach the mid 70s.
Sunday will be the best day out of the weekend with sunshine and highs in the upper 70s.
So far for the month of June, Indy has picked up 6.49” of rain.
With rain chances in the forecast, we could break into the record books for one of the wettest Junes. The 10th wettest June happened in 1876 with 7.54” of rain falling, so we need just a little more than an inch of rain to move that record. The wettest June on record had 12.21” of rain in 1875.
Our break from the rain won’t last long, late Sunday rain chances return, and in the 7 day forecast, a daily chance for showers and storms begins Monday.
After a morning of heavy rain across Central Indiana we are having a bit of break, however, we are watching the radar for the potential of more showers and storms to develop for this afternoon and evening.
These are the rain totals we’ve picked up from midnight through 10am.
Montezuma in Parke County saw 3.25″ of rain this morning, a Flash Flood Warning is in effect until 2:30pm for that area and a few surrounding counties.
At this time, a Flash Flood Watch is in effect for North Central Indiana.
This afternoon scattered showers and storms are again possible as we top out in the upper 70s.
We can’t rule out a strong or severe storm this afternoon or evening. That’s why we are still under a low risk of severe weather. Damaging wind, heavy rain, hail, and isolated tornadoes are all possible. However, damaging wind and heavy rain are our top threats.
This is a view of FutureTrak13 as we head into this evening.
Storms should end by tonight, but another chance for rain will come our way Friday.
Scattered showers and storms become likely by Friday afternoon and evening, and heavy rain will once again be a threat.
By Saturday, some spots could pick up to 1-2″ of additional rain. Sunday looks to be the best day out of the weekend with more wet weather moving in for the beginning of the week.
It’s a beautiful day across central Indiana with lower humidity and partly cloudy skies. Temperatures this morning were running 12 to 20 degrees cooler than Tuesday morning! We’re keeping an eye on the satellite/radar today. An isolated shower isn’t out of the question today, but most areas will remain dry.
We’re closely monitoring a storm complex off to the west will move into Indiana after midnight tonight. Until that gets here, we’ll see a comfortable day with highs in the low to mid 80s.
Tonight temps fall into the upper 60s with showers and storms developing after midnight. Some storms may be strong/severe with damaging wind and heavy rain the top threats. We can’t rule out large hail or even an isolated tornado.

Thursday the severe weather threat remains during the day as highs reach the low 80s.
Friday a few showers and storms will stick around but it won’t be a washout. By Friday night some spots could pick up between .5” and 2”+ of rain.
Spotty showers and storms are possible Saturday, but Sunday looks to be the pick of the week with highs in the upper 70s and low humidity.
