RAINY MONDAY

Finally, an area-wide soaking rainfall, and we could use more.

Fall of 2019 is among the driest on record, and entering the day, a whopping four inches below normal. The rain that fell is the most within a single day in over nine weeks (August 18). Many areas south and southeast welcomed the rain as well. In Bartholomew County, over one-inch totals were noted at Columbus and Edinburgh.

COLD FRONT COMING

A few more scattered showers/downpours are still possible through 11 p.m. ahead of a cold front that will sweep across the state. The clearing associated with a “dry slot” of air will enter western Indiana before sunset. The clearing overhead or wedge of dry air is in response to a powerful jet stream roaring overhead. Gusty winds of up to 40 mph are still possible as the air is mixed down to the surface and a colder air races in. By sunrise Tuesday, temperature will lower into the middle-to-upper 40s.
