What we need across central Indiana is an extended period of dry weather and we are finally going to get one. The weekend will start sunny and dry with highs in the 80s Saturday. A cold front will move across the state Saturday night and a line of t-storms will form ahead of the front. The rain will end after the front passes early Sunday morning. This will not be a major rain event with less than a quarter inch of rain falling.

To say this has been a wet year is an understatement. We have gone three days without rain or snow only six times this year. We had measurable rain on 44 of the past 91 days, with only 11 dry days the month of May. This has led to crippling delays to our farm community’s ability to work the fields and get planting done. Only a small fraction of crops are in the ground and we need several consecutive dry days in order to catch up. The good news is that we’ll have dry weather pattern setting up for most of next week.

Expect sunny skies Sunday through Tuesday with highs near 80 degrees. The week will end wet with a daily chance for rain coming Wednesday through Friday.
