If you’re heading downtown to enjoy the colts game or any other activities you’ll want to grab the rain gear.  Things will likely be dry as you are heading into the stadium but rain will arrive during the game.  The roof will be closed.  Technically with temperatures near 60 at the start of the game you should be able to leave the heavy jacket at home.  Winds will make it feel several degrees colder than what it actually is.

Rest of the day today:

A soaking rain arrives after 1 pm today.  Rain will likely last through at least 10 pm.  The heaviest rain, with a low chance for a few rumbles of thunder, will push through from 6 pm to 9 pm.  Rain rates during this time period may hit a quarter inch per hour in some areas.  Flooding concerns are low at this time but we may have some river flooding throughout the work week.
