Dry July leaving a mark on Indiana as August approaches

INDIANAPOLIS -- July is typically one of our wetter months of the year, but we haven't been so lucky this go around. 

Even though we've had several days with rain chances, the wet weather hasn't been all that widespread or heavy.

For the first time in about a month, we're experiencing "abnormally dry" conditions stretching from Indianapolis back to the SW along I-70.  If the dry weather persists, a moderate drought would be the result.

A typical July brings more the four inches of rain to central Indiana. 

This month, we're still sitting below an inch and a half - and August is rapidly approaching.

There are still some signs of relief on the way, though.

Early next week, rain chances ramp up for a couple of days and early indications are between one and two inches of rain could fall by August 2.
