Saturday 1/12 Forecast: Heavy Rain Possible This Weekend!

TODAY THROUGH MONDAY: Another front crashes in through the next 36 to 48 hours with a continuing chance of rain. This morning may be a dry one, but I look for the rain chances to ramp up again beginning this afternoon and continuing through the rest of the weekend. There may be periods of locally heavy rainfall from this afternoon through tomorrow evening. Because of the threat of heavy rainfall combined with the recent snow that has now melted away, the National Weather Service in Wilmington has issued a FLOOD WATCH for Fayette and Union counties in East Central Indiana from this evening through tomorrow afternoon — and it may be expanded southeastward a bit closer to the metro area. There might even be some thunder around this afternoon with a little instability! I am going with a high around 64 for today, but if we hold the rain off a bit more, I could see the southern part of our area (from Carrollton over to Maysville and Mt Olivet) pushing closer to 68. Tomorrow we will see a cool down with a high back into the lower 50’s. Finally, the rain exits by Monday evening, but not before possibly mixing in some snow showers tomorrow night into Monday. Highs on Monday will be near 40. So, plan some indoor activities this weekend! (If you’re into cars, then the Cavalcade of Customs is a good option for you.)

TUESDAY: We’re pulling precipitation chances back out of the forecast, so we stay dry with a high around 39.

WEDNESDAY: Our weather remains cold with highs to only 38 and lows near 26. The latest modeling has a weak front slipping through Wednesday evening, but it looks dry.

THURSDAY/FRIDAY: Another dry, but cold day…highs will be close to 36 with lows near 25.

NEXT UPDATE: The next post here will be tomorrow morning, as I’m attempting to fight off a bit of illness. Until then, take care!
