Good afternoon! We’ve seen a decent lull in the precipitation from the late morning hours until now. But that is coming to a close quickly. Rain will be lifting up from the south over the next few hours. At 4 PM, this line of showers was moving into Spencer, Bloomington and Nashville. This line of showers should be closer to I-70 by 5 PM and north of Indianapolis by 6 PM. This next wave of rainfall has the potential to produce lightning strikes along with some heavy downpours.
We’ll likely see the heaviest rain out of this system this evening and overnight. The weather models are still showing around 1″ from Tuesday evening through Wednesday. The six model average comes in at .94″ of rain for central Indiana but the bulk of this will fall before sunrise Wednesday. Severe weather is not expected tonight but you could see some heavy downpours or even some isolated flooding issues.
Spotty showers and storms will be in the forecast again on Wednesday, but lighter than what we’ll see Tuesday night. Severe weather is not expected again, so good news there. These showers and isolated storms will be driven by the cold front as it passes through the state. The rainfall chance is much lower in the morning and then increases for Wednesday afternoon and evening.
