STATEWIDE–Heavy rain could lead to flooding at times in southern and south-central Indiana today, according to the National Weather Service.
“Many of those areas already had over four inches of rainfall Sunday night. Those same areas are going to receive over an inch or two again today and that could lead to flooding pretty quickly,” said Chad Swain, meteorologist with the National Weather Service in Indianapolis.
Swain says many areas of Indiana will get rain between Tuesday and Thursday at some point.
“Friday will be the day where much of the state will dry out, although some areas in the south could see light rain on Friday,” said Swain.
At this point, Swain thinks there’s little to no chance of severe weather, but he urges you to keep an eye on the forecast because that can always change.
Some portions of the state that had been dealing with drought-like conditions have seen improvement.
“It definitely improved things for the southwest part of the state, especially, but there are still parts of the area, especially west of Indianapolis, that are still pretty dry,” said Swain.
Swain urges you not to drive into areas with high water and abide by the mantra, “Turn around. Don’t drown.”
