Portions of central Indiana continue to fell the slight effects from the remnants of Irma, as bands of rain slowly break away from the circulations center. Light, but scattered showers can be seen this afternoon along and south of I-70.
Rainfall amounts so far have been very light – only registering around a hundredth of an inch in some of our southern communities.
We could most definitely use the rain. All of central Indiana is running below average for the month – in some places, well over an inch in the whole. Add that to what was a very dry August, and it’s a recipe for extremely dry conditions across the state.
Parts of central Indiana continue to be included as “abnormally dry” in the past few drought monitors.
We’ll continue to see rain chances through the rest of the evening, but will remain very light and scattered. Rain should hang on through much of Wednesday, with slightly better coverage around central Indiana.
Watch for temperatures to be a bit more mild overnight, only dipping to the lower 60s for the Wednesday morning drive.
