River Update. Also Cooler And Cloudy Is Forecast Over The Next Few Days.

Well, first off lets go ahead and get everyone up to date on the rivers! You can see in the image above all the river details. We have had continued lowland flooding in much of the state over the last few days. Good news is I'm not seeing anymore heavy rainfall in the forecast for a little bit! Which means we will start to see some of the rivers go down overtime. So this means that much of the flooding in central Indiana should end by this weekend.

However flooding along portions of the Wabash river may extend into early July! So if you live by the rivers, this is something to take note of.

So again the good news is I'm not seeing anymore heavy heavy rainfall to move into the area over the next few days. Take a look at what tomorrow's surface chart looks like below.
That's right. Cooler and cloudy is the forecast at this time. As you can see I'm going to go ahead and keep a real slight chance of a stray small brief showers in the viewing area possible. However this is s slim chance! Otherwise mostly cloudy skies and highs in the 70s around 74* degrees. So why are we so much cooler for the rest of this week??

Take a look.
Above is a look at what today's surface chart looked like earlier this afternoon around 2:00pm EDT. You can see we have been watching a passing cold front move across the area. And it's bringing some cooler air with it from the northwest. Also the cloud cover over the next few days thanks to a strong low pressure system to our northwest will also help to block the sun and keep us with highs in the 70s.
You can see the low pressure I'm talking about in this satellite image above taken at 5:18pm EDT this evening. This is moving east keeping us cloudy over the next few days. A few brief breaks in the clouds from time to time possible however I'm not seeing 80s as we head into Friday.

80s will return by this weekend with possible 90s or at least near 90s by the start of next week. Here's your weather break down below.

Quick Cast.....

Thursday we will look for mostly cloudy skies across the area. I cannot totally rule out the slight chance of a brief stray shower somewhere in the WLFI viewing area. However overall we will see mostly cloudy skies. Expect a high around 74* degrees with a low that night around 56* degrees. Winds between 10 and 15 mph, Gusts to 18 - 20 mph possible.

Friday we will look for mostly cloudy skies to partly cloudy skies possible. Again a slight chance for a brief stray shower is possible. Expect another high in the 70s around 74* degrees with a low that night around 57* degrees. Winds light between 5 and 10 mph with a few gusts to 15 mph possible.

Take care bloggers.
God Bless!
