A lot of moisture will move across the Hoosier state starting this morning. Rains are moving, maybe even a few thunderstorms, in West Central and Central Indiana. We have more rain that’s going to continue through tomorrow through Thursday and Friday and early Saturday. Right now, it looks like the biggest rains will be today and then a second wave probably Friday into Saturday.
The rain will not clear out for tomorrow and Thursday. As a matter of fact, scattered light precipitation will be with us for 24 hours. There might be a pause Wednesday, as moisture is going to hang around over Central and Southern Indiana through the first and middle part of Wednesday.
There will be a second big wave coming Friday into Saturday. Around 9 or 10 AM Saturday morning expect anywhere from 1 to 2 inches easily across the state of Indiana with 100% state coverage.
Saturday afternoon and then Easter Sunday looking pretty good with sunshine and blue skies. A little bit of cloud cover to build in from the north and west as we are probably going to be seeing some scattered, light precipitation in Northern Indiana as we get into evening on Easter Sunday. Sunday night, expect light moisture of a few hundredths of an inch to 3-tenths as we go through mid-day on Monday.
Where we really have to pay attention is in Central and Southern Indiana. Overnight Monday night into Tuesday we have rain showers that may change to snow as a shot of cold air coming in overnight Monday night. The moisture will linger in Central and Southern Indiana. Expect 2-tenths to 6-tenths precipitation for Central and Southern Indiana, potentially wet snow.
In Northern Indiana, expect light snow on Tuesday afternoon. Rain will continue over Central and Southern Indiana, or at least continued precipitation overnight Tuesday night in the early Wednesday morning, adding another quarter to half an inch. We should be dry by Wednesday afternoon as high pressure comes in for Thursday and Friday
Our next big-time weather system will come on the 7th. We could be looking at anywhere from half to 2-inch rainfall totals. Temperatures will be normal to above normal for the rest of this week with below normal temperatures next week as that shot of cold air pushes through.
