Hurricane Isaac dumped some much needed rain on part of the state this weekend, but the National Weather Service says not nearly enough to wipe out the drought.
Meteorologist John Hendrickson says western Indiana got the most rain, upwards of four inches. He says Indianapolis International Airport got two inches over the weekend.
“We aren’t expecting any more heavy rain amount from it,and we actually lucked out with lesser rain amounts mainly because Isaac spent much of its time over Missouri and to our west,” Hendrickson says.
Hendrickson says there’s still a chance of showers running into Tuesday, but that is from another system. The remnants of Isaac have left Indiana. Hendrickson expects a couple of drier, cooler days this week with more rain moving in possibly Friday. The state is still well below normal for the year for precipitation.
