Soggy spell is coming as rain arrives and becomes steady overnight. We are entering a wet stretch over the next 24 hours with a steady rain falling starting tonight and easing tomorrow evening. At least it is still mild. Good Wednesday afternoon all!

We will lose some of the warmth here as the rain settles in. Rain will cool us into the middle 50s overnight - still well above the normal low of 30°

Thursday will be soggy - with healthy rainfall totals in some locations approaching 2" before ending late Thursday evening.

A average of 8 various computer rainfall estimates place 2.11" of rain down for the city of Indianapolis with a spread ranging from 1.25" to 3.12". The rain will end from northwest to southeast as a wind shifting cold front settles south Thursday night.

Colder temperatures will settle in by Friday morning - perhaps even a few upper 30s by sunrise Friday morning. We are not breaking the entire pattern, only a slight pull back from the warmth to end the week. Instead of 20 to 25 degrees above normal, Friday will cool to a paltry 10° above normal.
