INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) – Another 1 inch of rain will fall Wednesday afternoon.

This morning:

An area of ​​low pressure continues to swirl in southern Indiana. Scattered showers and thunderstorms developed early this morning. Some heavy rain showers have been observed. A flood warning is in effect for much of the metropolitan area until mid-morning. As much as 3 inches of rain has fallen in some areas since Tuesday afternoon. Another 1″ of rain is possible this morning.

Wednesday:

Scattered showers and some isolated areas of thunderstorms will continue for at least the first half of the day. By the afternoon the low will gradually disappear and bring the rain with it. I do expect cloud cover to remain heavy for most of the day.

High temperatures peak in the upper 60s and lower 70s.

Wednesday night:

The sky will clear tonight. This could create areas of fog across the state. Overnight, Lowe’s will drop to the mid-50s.

Much of Thursday looks quite good, with sunshine through the first half of the day. Clouds may appear during the afternoon ahead of our next system. There may be a few light showers in the early evening hours on Thursday.

High temperatures will extend into the mid 70s.

Friday:

The weather forecast for Friday and Friday night returns to the forecast: showers and thunderstorms. No extreme weather is expected, but another round of heavy rainfall could lead to local flooding throughout the day on Friday. High temperatures will peak in the mid-70s.

Weekend:

There will be some persistent showers and thunderstorms early Saturday morning, but much of the weekend should be dry and very warm. Saturday’s high will peak in the mid and upper 70s. Highs on Sunday will be around 80.

Extended prediction:

There are some signs that this pattern will remain active as we enter the new work week. With several rain and thunderstorms and very warm temperatures.

The 8 to 14 day outlook also keeps us that way through that stretch.
