STATEWIDE–There will be some scattered rain showers throughout the state Tuesday, but skies are expected to clear up on Wednesday.

“The same system that was around late last week is still around causing some showers and thunderstorms this week,” said Joe Skowronek, meteorologist with the National Weather Service in Indianapolis. “The most likely time for storms today is from late this afternoon through the evening hours.”

Flooding is a concern, especially in low-lying areas.

“Most areas have been pretty wet since June because of the recent rain. Any area that gets a lot of rain in a short amount of time could be a flooding problem,” said Skowronek.

He expects any scattered showers and thunderstorms to move out by late tonight, which will give way to a clear Wednesday across the state.

“But then after Wednesday, another front comes in. So we’re expecting increasing chances of showers and thunderstorms starting Thursday and especially Friday into Saturday,” said Skowronek. “Most of the rain will start out over the northern part of the state on Friday. As that front moves south, it will get into the southern part of the state Saturday.”

Skowronek is not expecting any of these storms to bring widespread severe weather at this point.
