INDIANAPOLIS--Rain is supposed to move into Indiana late Monday night and stick around through Thursday, according to the National Weather Service in Indianapolis.

“We have a rather large system coming through the Missouri Valley starting tonight,” said Tara Dudzik, meteorologist with the National Weather Service in Indianapolis. “Late tonight, some rain will start to move into the western counties and then spread all over central Indiana on Tuesday.”

Dudzik says some thunderstorms could happen Tuesday afternoon or evening, but she’s not expecting any severe weather at this time.

“Then we have another chance for thunderstorms from Wednesday night through Thursday night. It’s a little too early to tell the severity of those,” said Dudzik. “There could be some strong winds or small hail with some of the thunderstorms.”

Since more rain is expected this week and there was quite a bit of rain last week, Dudzik says flooding of some of the rivers in Indiana is also a concern.

“Some of our rivers in the southern counties are still flooded, so this is going to add to the problem and make things a little bit worse,” said Dudzik.

She expects the rain to completely move out by Friday.
