A few sprinkles and small storms are scattered through areas southwest of Indianapolis Friday morning.  We could see a few raindrops this morning but nothing substantial like we had yesterday morning.

It feels like we've had a lot of rain lately but this is interesting: for the month of May, we're actually a bit *below* average!  The reason we're so waterlogged, though, is because we got ahead on rainfall in February and stayed ahead in March and April.  At this point annually, we're 3.71" above average on precipitation.

Spotty rain Friday morning will move out by lunchtime. After that, we're left with a hot and humid Carb Day.  Stay hydrated!

Warm and humid Friday night with a low of just 70°.

Saturday will be dry through lunchtime, so mow your lawn then! Storms will fire up between 3-6 p.m.  Saturday night will be dry.

The forecast for the 500 is not great--hot and humid with rain on and off all day. Scattered storms will likely be dampening IMS by 8 a.m. with on and off rain through 8 p.m.

More rain expected on Memorial Day, but it does seem to be that the rain will be mainly an afternoon issue.  Tuesday looks great for the Indians' return to Victory Field.
