Indiana Climate and Weather Report – 8/22/2019

Sporadic rain events are barely bringing relief to sections of Indiana (last 7 days pcpn accumulation Figure 1).  Warmer temperatures have encouraged evapotranspiration, leading to higher humidity and heat indexes.  Therefore, many locations across the state are experiencing abnormally dry conditions coupled with a muggy environment.  The climate outlooks for the next 2-3 weeks are showing confidence that precipitation should be above normal with temperatures below normal.  For climatological perspective on what this might mean, from 1981-2010, accumulated precipitation for August 22 – September 5th ranges between 1.5” to 2” (Figure 2) and average daily temperatures range from 70°F-80°F (Figure 3).
