From earlier post-
AT 2 PM STORM CHANCES ON THE RISE
Clouds are puffing up and storms are developing again Friday afternoon, targeting more of southern third of state. At 2 PM 45,000 foot storms are moving east from Bedford to near Greensburg. Storms likely to gain some strength as afternoon heating continues, day 6 of warm and humid weather. There could be a gusty or even a severe storm roaming this region of the state through 7 PM.
Heavy rain falling in parts of southern Indiana at rates of 1.50″ to 2″ per hour have prompted areal flood warnings until 6 PM. Should storm continue to roam over same areas – flash flood is likely.
SPC (Storm Prediction Center) as been eyeing this area for possible watch issue.this afternoon.
SOME RELIEF FROM HUMIDITY
A weak cold front passes around 8 PM in city – scattered storm chances will drop sharply as northwest winds arrive along with the advertised slight pull back in humidity for the weekend (let me emphasize slight).
Nearing 5″ of rain officially for the month (4.93″). Ranks 18th all-time to date. More than the entire June normal rain of 4.25″.
After that harsh winter this could be music to some of your ears!
Today is the last full day of Spring! Summer officially begins Saturday at 6:51:17 – the exact time when the most direct rays of the sun reach its northernmost point in the sky. Longest day of the year, days begin to shorten now for the next 6 months.
