Summertime sunshine for much of your time off, with at least the prospect of precipitation looming large as the weekend ends. Does it get any better than this?
Humidity will start increasing a little Sunday morning, and clouds will start increasing a little Sunday afternoon. Rain chances return after midnight Sunday night. At the moment, it looks like 50-60 percent coverage on Monday into Tuesday morning and midday.
It’s a Knozone Action Day in Marion counties, as well as an Air Quality Alert Day in Hamilton, Hancock, Shelby, Johnson, Morgan, Greene, Monroe, Owen, Hendricks and Boone counties.
I think it was the great 70s weather philosopher Roseanne Roseannadanna who said: “it’s always something.” Four years ago today Indiana was reeling from nine nasty days of anything but dry weather. Check out this 2008 recap:
