MORE RAIN OVERNIGHT

The wet May pattern rolls along. Monday rainfall added another .33" to the monthly total. Now over 2" since the first and measurable rain every day except one, it’s the 17th wettest start to a May on record.

RAIN FOR TUESDAY AM COMMUTE

A front is slowly creeping north Monday night and will reach north-central Indiana on Tuesday. Showers are to scatter later this evening and lift north. Later tonight, more showers will return along with a few t-storms.  Locally heavy downpours are possible early Tuesday morning.

Showers may ease Tuesday mid-morning but not quite clear the area. While some rain-free hours may develop, Tuesday looks to be the wettest day of the next 7.  Scattered t-storms are likely Tuesday afternoon and evening easing and diminishing overnight into Wednesday.
