Indianapolis had its wettest April day on record, seeing 3.9 inches of rain, while winds at the Houston airport gusted up to 60 miles per hour. A trace of snow was recorded on May 8, 1947.

Light rain and drizzle we've been seeing from time to time will continue for the rest of the afternoon as temperatures hover around the 40 degree mark.

Right now, there is a 60 percent chance of rain and snow Friday.
