This is currently our fifth wettest July on record as we’ve already had more than 6″ of rain. We have had at least .01″ of rain for 26 of the past 49 days. Almost 14″ of rain has fallen since June 1. This is the fourth wettest summer to date, and what central Indiana needs is a long period of dry weather.
The good news is that sunny skies will prevail through Thursday. Highs will be in the 80s, with lows in the 60s. Our next chance for rain will not arrive until Friday. As has been the trend so far this summer, that will begin another streak of days with a daily chance for scattered showers and storms. Up to an inch of rain will be likely during that time.
Rainfall for July now exceeds 6″.
