Rain Along and North of I-70, Gradually Tapers This Afternoon

Unfortunately, rain forced the cancellation of today’s Indiana Fever victory parade. The festivities moved indoors to Bankers Life Fieldhouse.

The rain set up along and north of I-70, dropping more than 3/4″ on Lucas Oil Stadium Downtown and more than 1″ at Purdue.

In sharp contrast, rain amounts south and east of I-70 have been much lighter.

Temperatures at noon tell the story as well. Rain-cooled air kept it in the 50s in Kokomo, but sunshine and dry weather pushed it to 71 at the lunch hour in Bloomington.

This afternoon, we’ll see the rain gradually taper and temperatures should rebound into the 70s by late afternoon.

Tomorrow, we’re still on track for a high around 80 tomorrow with lots of sunshine. The record for tomorrow is 81 set in 1963.

Thursday will be our last warm day (also close to a record) before a strong front drops us to below average highs Friday into next week. For now, I’ve got the high at 60 on Friday, but some computer model data suggests we may be stuck in the 50s with rain still likely.

Hope you enjoy the rest of your day,
