Rainy stretch for Central Indiana

This is an archived article and the information in the article may be outdated. Please look at the time stamp on the story to see when it was last updated.

The wet and dreary stretch of weather has not ended in Central Indiana.  Another round of light showers are headed in this afternoon in a non-traditional direction. Rain is actually heading in from Ohio and moving west.  Any of these afternoon showers will have light to moderate rainfall but no storms are expected.   Here’s a look at when to expect rain over the coming days.

The upper level low in the Gulf States will continue to bring about cloudy to mostly cloudy conditions today.  Within the clouds, some light, isolated showers will still be possible throughout the afternoon hours.  Any rainfall this afternoon will result in only minor accumulations and no thunderstorms are expected today.   The weather finally turns dry overnight through Tuesday morning.


Rainfall potential this afternoon

But another chance for rain is going to arrive for Tuesday afternoon.  This is basically a 30% chance for showers and thunderstorms from the early afternoon hours until sunset.  No one location has a guaranteed chance for precipitation and so of you will end up with no rain at all.  But the storm activity on Tuesday afternoon will be driven by afternoon heating and instability.  We will no longer be under the direct influence of the upper level low that brought about the dreary weekend.  Fox Futurecast easily picks up this isolated activity for Tuesday afternoon.  The same set up is also in place for Wednesday afternoon. 


Pop up storms Tuesday and Wednesday afternoon

But the big thing to take note of is that this is NOT a constant chance for rainfall.  Dry windows will emerge to where you can get outside and enjoy the slowly warming temperatures.  This is just a good week to be checking the radar here on Fox59.com or by using your Fox 59 Weather Authority app on your smart phone.
