INDIANAPOLIS– We have at least .01″ of rain for 23 of the past 45 days. Almost 12 inches of rain has fallen since June 1st. This is the fifth wettest summer to date and our unsettled weather pattern will continue into the weekend. Scattered thunderstorms will move across the state overnight with the greatest risk for severe storms over west central Indiana. The main threat from the storms will be damaging straight-line winds and torrential rain that will cause flash flooding.
