I’ll be honest with you. I left the Office to write this update from my porch. Take a little time to enjoy the View! (Not THAT one.) Friday morning fog gave way to some beautiful blue sky, and dry, comfortable air is moving in behind yesterday’s cold front.
That front brought some showers and storms. Absolutely nothing fell officially at the Indianapolis Weather Service, which probably cinches the driest-ever-June title. The Airport is stalled at .05 inches with just a week to go.
RAIN TOTALS THURSDAY:
1.63″ near Galveston in Cass County
1.53″ northwest of Kokomo
1.07″ south side of Lafayette
0.34″ just north of Brownsburg
0.28″ northwest corner of Marion County
0.15″ near Carmel
0.00″ Indy Airport (southwest side)
I’ve also attached a map of rainfall yesterday, and that’s clearly a civil weather war that the North won.
People were so excited by rain Thursday…they hit my Twitter hard with pics. I actually read that “rain” was a Trending Topic for awhile late Thursday afternoon. (Weather is NOT what cause Twitter to choke yesterday.) Meanwhile on Facebook, David Millhoan responded to my latest “scattered” forecast with “We dont need scattered we need smothered!!!!”
Maybe later Sunday? That’s our next Scattered Stuff. A cold front is coming later Sunday and could spark showers and storms. Temperatures behind that front will be COOLER than average (I thought that was worth shouting about) the first half of the next work week.
A disturbance in the Gulf of Mexico will dump up to 5 inches of rain along the Florida Coast & Keys this weekend.
Thursday’s high of 93 was the 3rd day in a row of 93 degree highs, and the 4th time in 6 days that it happened. It’s also the warmest temperature in Indy so far this year.
The average high today is 84 and the average low is 64. Records are 99 and 37. The sunrise is 6:18 and the sun sets at 9:17.
9 (Very high.)
Indy will be “low-medium” today through the weekend, and may go back up to “medium” by Monday.
