Beryl’s remnants to bring heavy rain, severe weather potential Tuesday into Wednesday

Mon evening forecast – July 8, 2024

INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) — Prepare for a very active next 48 hours as we’ll watch the remnants of once was Hurricane Beryl bring heavy rain to our region by Tuesday night into Wednesday.

Flood watches may be needed in the next 24 hours.

Monday night: Before we steer in the direction of dealing with Beryl, we’ll track a few showers and storms for tonight with increasing cloud cover.

Lows will only fall into the low 70s.

Tuesday: Beryl will gradually enter our state throughout Tuesday with rain coverage eventually turning widespread.

The heaviest of the rain will be focused in the Tuesday night to Wednesday with rainfall rates up to 1″-2″ per hour at times.

There will also be a risk for severe weather as there is a Slight Risk (level 2/5) in southern Indiana with everyone else along/south of interstate 70 in a Marginal Risk (level 1/5). The main concern will be isolated tornadoes, but damaging winds will also be a threat.

Concerns for flooding are definitely in the mix with instances of flash flooding possible. Use caution while traveling on the roads late Tuesday and Wednesday. We’re expecting up to 1″-3″ (locally higher amounts possible) across much of the state with this system. One other note, do not forget to clear your storm drains before the bulk of this rain slides in to prevent further ponding/flooding.

Highs will only be in the low 80s due to the extra cloud cover and rain.

Wednesday: Showers and some rumbles of thunder will persist into Wednesday with the backside of Beryl passing through.

Highs are going to struggle to get into the mid 70s. It will also turn a bit breezy with gusts up to 20-30 MPH at times.

8-Day Forecast: We’ll keep the chance of isolated showers and storms around for the remainder of the workweek and this weekend as temperatures quickly heat back up. The muggy meter will also remain in the uncomfortable to miserable category through this time period. Highs look to push back to near 90 this weekend.
