Planting Forecast: Not Much of a Silver Lining in Those Rain Clouds

SHARE

There is a Memorial Day weekend tradition in Indiana: planting crops while listening to the Indy 500 race on the tractor radio. For much of Indiana, that is not going to happen this year. HAT chief meteorologist Ryan Martin says the next few days will be more wet than dry. “Wet as we start off the period with significant rains for the first two days of the holiday weekend,” he stated. “The second of two waves from this event moves through Sunday, and that will bring two-day rain totals at .5”-1.5” with coverage at 80%. Rains Sunday will not be lighter or have lower coverage than Saturday rains…this will just be an all-out rain event for most of the state.”
