Indianapolis’ continues to add to its historic dry weather milestone. We have now had .18″ rain over a 56-day stretch, the longest dry spell on record. Rainfall amounts were light on Monday and our weather will stay active with chances for more rain this week.
After a dry, mild Wednesday with highs near 80 degrees, a cold front will bring our second rainfall of the month on Thursday.
