For the 5-day period, it looks like the majority of the rain expected to fall will be on Thursday night through Friday night. Rainfall amounts on Friday will be around one-half to one inch total, with locally higher amounts possible in imbedded heavier rain showers or thunderstorms. A warm front is expected to lift from the Plains to bring widespread rain on the day Friday. Flooding could be a concern, near area rivers and streams, however the chance of flash flooding is low.
The timing for the rain on Saturday is looking like the rain will be mainly a morning issue, as rain chances will decrease as the day goes on. A cold front will pass through the region Saturday morning making for Saturday to be a cooler and windy day with temperatures in the low 60’s.
A pattern flip is expected on Sunday as an very strong, summer-like upper level ridge will dominate the weather pattern for Sunday through Tuesday, and perhaps even longer. Creating a dry and potentially hot weather pattern. Temperatures will be well above average starting on Tuesday with highs in the upper 80’s expected. Temperatures hitting 90°F is not unexpected on Tuesday, but unlikely at this point, very fitting summer weather for the first week of summer break for all the Ball State students out there!
