Stormy Pattern Continues

Posted By · June 15, 2015 at 10:56 am

Scattered showers and storms will continue to be in the forecast this week, it won’t be a washout, but a daily chance for rain exists.

Isolated, but heavy rain fell across Central Indiana this morning.  Including this morning’s rain, Indianapolis now has 2.77″ of rain for the month of June, the average rainfall for the entire month 4.25″.

This afternoon any shower or storm that develops will contain heavy rain.  We will see dry hours, and not everyone will see rain this afternoon.

As we go into tonight scattered showers and thunderstorms will remain in the forecast.

Tuesday morning we remain mild with lows in the 70s, with a chance for showers and storms again in the morning and afternoon with highs in the low 80s.

Some storms Tuesday could be strong/severe with damaging wind, hail and the potential for flooding.

With more storms in the forecast through this week, flooding will be a concern.

We still need to watch closely to see where the heaviest rain axis will set up, however, it appears that totals greater than 3″ will be possible.

For now, Saturday looks like our driest day in the 7 day forecast.  We’ll continue to time the rain each day and keep you posted on the best times to take advantage of dry time.
