August ends wet and cooler; remnants of Ida soaks the Southeast


So far, August has been warm and dry. Temperatures have been 3 degrees above average, and we’ve had 11 90-degree days this month. The wet weather pattern that began early Monday morning as a slow-moving cold front will continue through Tuesday. Heavy rain is likely for the next 24 hours. Along and south of I-70, 1-2″ of rain will cause flash flooding.

Dry weather will return Wednesday, and we’ll have sunny skies with low humidity. Expect highs near 80 and cool mornings with lows near 60 degrees. Hoosiers will enjoy three days before our next chance for rain arrives Saturday.
