Not much chance for rain across central Indiana this week
After a wet start to the year, precipitation has been scarce across central Indiana for the past five weeks. Precipitation for the year is still well above average but we have been very dry for the past five weeks. The growing season that got off to a late start due to excess rain that prevented planting, has now been slowed by a lack of rainfall.
We’ll have three chances for rain over the next seven days, but widespread heavy rainfall is not expected. Highs will be in the 80 to near 90 this week. The upcoming weekend looks dry and if the forecast verifies, this will be third dry weekend this year. So far, we have not had three consecutive dry weekend this year. You have to go all the way back to August of 2018 to fine three consecutive dry weekend for Indianapolis.
