(May 15, 2014) – The storms are over, but the rain will remain in the forecast through at least Saturday. This unsettled weather is due to a deep trough and a cut off low that will come out of it. We won’t see much sunshine through Saturday, but I do think we see some sun late this afternoon. Yesterday we failed to hit 60 degrees and we are forecasting a high today in just the 50s as well.
These spring showers and storms we’ve seen over the past couple of days have made up for the dry start to the month we saw. After only recording trace rain through the first nine days of the month, Indianapolis is now up to 2.48 inches of rain through midnight. This is a fifth of an inch over the average for this time of the month of May. Yesterday the city recorded 1.37 inches of rain that came down light and slow. It was a very good soaking rain that has limited the chance for flash flooding. Flood warnings along rivers have now been issued, however.
Your forecast is going to remain soggy and unseasonably cool through Saturday. The average high temperature for this time of the year is 72°. We will be about 15 degrees cooler than that on average through Saturday. We do rebound quickly with highs likely back in the 70s on Monday and 80s being possible by mid-week. We could see an additional half inch of rain through Saturday. After that, it looks like it will be dry. Enjoy your day!
