Storms Popping AgainBy
More hit and miss storms are dotting central Indiana, with the greatest concentration expected to be along and south of I-70. Keep tabs on rain/storms with Doppler 13 Radar at this link: http://www.wthr.com/category/256369/indianapolis-live-doppler-radar The radar image below is from around 2:30pm. Though scattered, these storms will produce frequent lightning, gusty wind and possibly flash flooding rain. The cells in Indiana don’t seem to be as stationary as Saturday… but movement is slow to the northeast at 5-10mph.
The complex over southern Illinois is stationary, and has dropped some 3-4″ of rain since this morning…producing flash flooding around Effingham, IL. 2pm temps are mainly in the mid 80s, with heat indices near 90. Scattered clouds and some preicp may again prevent the season’s 1st 90° day. Regardless… it’s going to be hot and will definitely feel like mid 90s with high humidity.
FutureTrak 13 shows the spotty heavy storms diminishing by 8pm. Though isolated overnight showers are possible, most areas should remain mostly dry after dark. Like clockwork… we’ll see another round of late day storms Monday. An updated 7 day forecast will be posted later this evening – Sean Ash
