Scattered Showers and Storms for Father’s Day

By · June 16, 2012 at 11:21 pm

While some parts of Indiana did receive some much-needed rain Saturday, most of the Hoosier State remained hot and dry. But there’s the chance of some scattered showers and t-storms overnight (mainly after 2am) and again on Father’s Day from morning to afternoon. If you’re lucky, you might get around 1/2″ of rain (more in any slow-moving downpours). There will also be plenty of dry time for any outdoor Father’s Day plans.

So who got the rain Saturday? Parts of Warren county got an estimated 6″ of rain prompting flood warnings. More than 3″ of rain fell in parts of Fountain County per radar estimates. And more than 2″ in parts of Montgomery. Heavy rain also fell in East-Central Indiana from Wayne County to Jay County. But remained bone dry in the Indy Metro.

Here’s a closer look at some of the heavy rain from radar estimates. We did receive a report from a weather spotter in Rob Roy (Fountain County) who measured 4.12″ of rain there and reported some small hail and minor wind damage.

We hit 93 on Saturday – the hottest since September 3rd and just 3 degrees shy of a record! It was our 6th day this year of 90+ heat. Father’s Day will bring a bit of heat relief. The added clouds and better rain chances should hold high temps in the 80s.

The cool-down won’t last long! By Monday we’re back in the 90s through most of the week. Our next chance of rain after Father’s Day arrives Thursday to Friday in your WTHR-TV 7-Day.

Happy Father’s Day!
