Work Week Outlook & Where We Stand on Yearly Rain

By · June 30, 2013 at 6:00 pm

Rain and storm chances stick with us over the next 7 days… but as we’ve seen over the past week… a washout is not expected.

Showers and thunderstorms will become more isolated tonight as we lose daytime heating.  We will still see isolated activity into tonight.


The showers and storms have been it or miss… check out the “official” rain totals over the last 24 hours…

Yes it’s been soggy, but at least we are in a much better situation than we were last year.  Check out the chart below:

soggy streak

For the month of June Indy has picked up just over 3.5″ of rain.  Since January 1st we’ve had more than 25″ of rain, that puts us almost 4″ above normal!  Compare that to last year’s rain totals from January 1st to the end of June, remember the drought and canceled fireworks shows?  During the first 6 months of 2012 we only had 15.15″ of rain.  Compare that to so far this year and we’re 10″ above that.

Our soggy pattern continues Monday.  Not an all day rain out, but we will see showers and storms pop up, especially in the afternoon and early evening.

The 7 day contains more of the same.  Remember, the normal high this time of year is 85, so we are well below that.  There is a daily chance of showers and storms, and that includes Thursday July 4th.  We’ll keep you posted about any and all changes!

7 day
