Ryan Martin’s Indiana Ag Forecast for July 17, 2018


All shower action has pushed off to the east and we are looking at several dry days in a row now through Thursday. High pressure will be in control, and humidity levels should retreat just a bit. High temps pull back a few degrees and stay near to slightly below normal.

Rain remains in our forecast for Friday. We have showers and a thunderstorm or two over 70% of the state and we are leaving rain totals at .75” or less, and most of us will be in the .25” area. Our concern about moisture lingering through the entire weekend has abated somewhat. We can see some clouds through Saturday, especially early on, and perhaps there is a shower or two shortly after sunrise, but the wrap around action looks to be much farther east and will focus on Ohio. So, we should see a gradual clearing on Saturday, with partly to mostly sunny skies on Sunday.

We are dry to start the week next week as we kick off the extended forecast window. However, we still see a nice front around the 24th (next Tuesday) that will bring half to maybe 1 inch of rain to 80% of the state. Then we go back dry for the 25th-27th. A minor disturbance for the 28th looks to stay mostly south of the Ohio River, and currently is not expected to have much of an impact.

Temperatures do not look too bad the rest of the week, with a slow build late in the week to near and slightly above normal, then as rains come Friday, we pull back and should see slightly below normal temps for the weekend and early next week. We still see no reason to deviate from our weekend projection of highs in the upper 70s mostly, to low 80s.
