Happy 4th of July weekend everyone! Temperatures will remain on the cool side for the next few days with increasing rain chances.
Today we don't have to worry about any rain. It will be a dry afternoon with increasing clouds and temperatures below normal in the upper 70s.
If you are headed out to any fireworks displays tonight it is looking great! Cool and comfy with mostly cloudy skies, you may even want a light jacket.
By day break Sunday some of us will be waking up to rain and the precipitation will be with us into Monday.
Around lunch time Sunday it looks like the southern half of the state will see a few dry hours with most of the rain north of I-70.
Around 6pm the rain will shift south of I-70 and we are expecting some very heavy downpours.
Overnight the rain will become more scattered in nature but a few showers will linger 4th of July morning.
The rain sticks with us during the afternoon but it will become more isolated by the evening hours.
Monday night a lot of areas will be dry with just an isolated shower remaining. Temperatures will be in the mid 70s for the start of any fireworks displays.
Rainfall totals will range from 1-2 inches with the heaviest amounts in the southern half of Indiana. Locally some areas could see 4 inches of rain.
Although widespread severe weather is not expected an isolated severe storm south of Indy is possible Sunday and Monday.
Sunday will be the coolest of the next 7 day with highs only in the lower 70s. The heat and humidity will build back in through the work week with slight rain chances.
