The rain has started in Indiana and it will continue into the 4th of July. A Flash Flood Watch is in effect until Monday evening for the southern half of the state including Indianapolis. The heaviest rain will fall overnight and that is when our highest risk for flash flooding will occur.
Areas along and south of I-70 will see the highest rainfall totals from 2 to 4 inches. Some areas will locally pick up higher amounts.
Today we will be running well below normal temperature wise, staying in the mid to upper 60s.
Steady light to moderate rain showers will continue through most of Sunday with a few embedded thunderstorms.
Another round of heavier rain and thunderstorms will develop overnight. A few strong to severe storms are possible mainly in far southern Indiana, with damaging winds the main concern although an isolated tornado can't be ruled out.
The 4th of July is also looking soggy with scattered showers and thunderstorms continuing.
Extreme southern Indiana is still under a slight risk for severe weather tomorrow. Damaging winds and heavy rain are the main concerns.
It looks dry for the fireworks displays on Monday night! An isolated shower is still possible in the state but a lot of areas will begin to dry out tomorrow evening.
Heat and humidity build back in next week with temperatures returning to near 90 degrees. Wednesday and Thursday are our next best chances for rain with slight chances the rest of the week.
