Good evening to everyone out there! As of 1:30 pm it is 59°F under a mostly cloudy sky with a southwest wind at 9 mph. It maybe dry for the time being after some late morning downpours rolled through, but some more convection will cause some heavy pockets of rain and a possible rumble of thunder or two to move across the Muncie area later this evening. The radar is clear for now with all the rain off to the north and east but some light showers are popping up on radar now and is likely to strengthen and head northeast from south-central Indiana to the Muncie area in a few hours times. Once nightfall hits the chances of thunderstorms will decrease as a weak cold front will move through about 10 pm tonight which will cause a rather quick drop off in temperatures and a change in wind direction from southwest to north. Our current high for today is 67°F set back at 11 am before the late morning storms rolled through. Temperatures could rebound to the upper 60’s today but it is conditional based on cloud cover. Additional rainfall totals from the rain this evening should be around one-half inch. Tonight’s low when we hit our low for today around midnight should be around 50°F, soon after the front moves through, much of the evening should be in the upper 50’s.
