Indiana not expecting much weather influence from Hurricane Delta

Hurricane Delta is bringing lots of rain and wind to the Gulf Coast. So will any of the remnants bring rain to Indiana?


Barely, if any, says WISH-TV Meteorologist Marcus Bailey.


"Maybe the southern half of the state could see a little bit," he said. "But at this point, it looks like the heaviest of the rain is probably going to stay well south of the Ohio River."


Bailey says counties along the river could get a few tenths-of-an-inch of rain. But, the majority of the state could get "spits" of rain, meaning the drought will continue in most areas of Indiana.


"Unfortunately, for us, it just wasn't in the cards for Delta to come far enough north to provide us with any decent amount of rainfall."


He adds that temperatures this weekend will stay well above average for this time of the year, with highs on Saturday around 80 degrees, and in the 70s for Sunday.


"This part of October, we should be averaging in that upper-60 range," Bailey said.


A cool down is expected late next week, where highs will be in the 50s and 60s, with lows in the 30s and 40s.
