Wet Holiday Weekend

Posted By · November 27, 2015 at 12:06 pm

Widespread rain has moved into central Indiana and the wet weather will stick around this evening.   This large storm system stretches from Michigan all the way into Texas.  Moisture will continue to push in ahead of a cold front, keeping rain with pockets of heavy rain into Saturday morning.  Temperatures will gradually fall throughout the afternoon, thanks to the cold front and rain cooled air.  If you are heading to the Circle of Lights tonight, dress for the wet conditions and temperatures in the low 40s.


The cold front will stall out along the Ohio River Valley tomorrow and will keep rain in the forecast at least through the morning.  Rain totals by Saturday morning will be one inch or more from this system with temperatures falling into the upper 30s.


There is still a chance of rain through Saturday afternoon, with the best chance of rain along and south of I-70.


Afternoon highs will only climb into the low 40s.


If you are heading to the Old Oaken Bucket bucket, grab the rain gear.  Rain is possible through the afternoon.


More rain will be possible on Sunday with highs in the mid 40s.


The unsettled pattern continues on Monday with another round of rain likely.

There is a chance of a wintry mix on Tuesday with falling temperatures and breezy winds.
