Tuesday began with Flash Flood Warnings south of Indy, including parts of Clay, Greene, Monroe, Owen, and Sullivan counties. Over three inches of rain was reported. Exactly one inch fell in Indy.
But it won’t last. The upper trough and cold front bringing the rain pain will move east and south (respectively) of central Indiana by afternoon. The steady rain should end by 9 or 10 am around the Indy metro, and by noon to the east and south of Indy.

High pressure makes a cameo appearance tonight and tomorrow, with some nice weather and lower humidity. Cut your grass tomorrow, because a warm front will bring back the heat and humidity early Thursday, along with the chance of a pop-up storm.
Good chances of storms will return Friday into Saturday morning. A cold front wipes the heats and humidity off the board for at least a few days after that.
Indy hasn’t had a below-average temperature day since August 17. The last day with a low in the 50s was August 16. The 50s should return Saturday night.
The average high today is 82 and the average low is 62. Records are 100 and 45. The sun rises at 7:14 and sets at 8:15.
