Winter Advisories ADI

Winds return to the south tomorrow and this is really going to help our temperatures increase quickly throughout the day.  We should easily climb into the mid 60s if not a touch warmer.  Skies will be a mix of sun and clouds throughout the day and winds will be in the from the southeast at 4 to 8 mph.  This finally gets temperatures up to “normal” for this time of year.

Meteogram Night

Rainfall chances return as early as Tuesday afternoon and the chance will continue through Wednesday morning.  A four model average brings in .68″ of rain for Indianapolis, but this does not represent the entire area.  There are some locations where rainfall amounts will end up higher, especially in western and southwestern Indiana.

This raises concerns for flooding issues.  Most of the excessive rain has made its way downstream but river levels are still elevated into “minor” and even “major” flood stage.  Any additional rain on our saturated soils would cause these rivers to rise again.  As of tonight, the following rivers are still under Flood Warnings: East Fork of the White River, Eel River, Muscatatuck River, Wabash River and White River.  Remember, if you see water covering the road, turn around and take a different path.
