This summer has featured far more dry days than wet and that has taken its toll on the Hoosier state. 53% of the state is currently considered in a drought! 12% is in a “severe drought” including parts of the Southwest Indy Metro! Here’s a look at drought conditions courtesy of the U.S. Drought Monitor:
Though the long-range outlook for Indiana is for above normal temperatures and below average precipitation, we have a good chance at catching up on a little much-needed rain tonight & tomorrow. First, a warm front moves through, followed by a cold front. Ahead of and along both of those fronts, we get a chance of rain (maybe even an isolated t-storm, though not severe). Hoosiers could get up to 1″ of rain. Check out the precipitation outlook thanks to NOAA/Hydrometeorological Prediction Center:
After the rain, we’ll see a nice and dry day Tuesday. Another front approaches Wednesday, but it doesn’t look like it will have a whole lot of moisture with it, so I’m only forecasting a 20% chance of showers/storms with it. The rest of the week looks cooler and mainly dry for now, just in time for the Autumnal Equinox which arrives 5:05 am on Friday as we welcome Fall!
Have a great week!
