Afternoon Storms & A Soggy Outlook

If you have afternoon and evening plans, keep the rain gear handy.

If you have afternoon and evening plans, keep the rain gear handy.

Scattered showers and thunderstorms are slowly rotating around an area of low pressure.  What does that mean for us?  Shower and storm chances stick through tonight and into Sunday across Central Indiana.

So far some of the heaviest rain has been missing the rain buckets, this is a look at rain totals through 2:30pm:

If there’s a plus side to the rain, it’s the cooler temps.  We’re running about 10 degrees cooler than this time yesterday.  Our normal high this time of year is 85, here’s a look at what we had at 2:30pm:


If you have evening plans tonight, the showers and storms should start to die down as we lose daytime heating, but I’m not ruling out scattered showers and storms as we go into tonight.


The 7 day remains cool… but rainy.  I’ll post more on that in a bit.

    1. As mentioned in the weather blog, scattered showers and isolated storms will be possible tonight. It is hard to pinpoint exactly who will see rain. The chance is there.

    I got 3.55″ on July 2. I live near 71st and meridian. Please look at
    yesterdays radar. thru july 2nd I have received approx. 42.7″

    1. Howard, the “official” total for Indianapolis comes from the Indianapolis International Airport. I know many spots have received less or more rain depending on where the heavier thunderstorms set up. Thanks so much for your report! Rain totals are always welcome!
