Rain chances are fading

Looks like the “Friday the thirteenth” superstition will come true in at least one topic today…rainfall. All week forecasters have been pointing to today as our best bet for some rain to ease our lengthening dry spell. Now, however, it seems likely the rain won’t develop locally.
A weak cool front is slowly working southward over Indiana, but this front has been unable to generate any showers/thunderstorms today. And most likely won’t be able to. Instead, a line of showers and thunderstorms formed just east of us earlier this afternoon and is moving into northeastern KY.
Still some hope the front could kick up some rain this evening, but don’t count on it. Short term models keep us dry tonight. Needed rainfall won’t return until Monday afternoon at the earliest.
