Wednesday night rain prompts new Flash Flood Watch

Adjust Comment Print

Sadly, rain chances are moderate all day and will leak into your Friday night out.

Tonight through Friday morning, 2-to-3 inches of rain is possible and that will prompt a new Flash Flood Watch for central IN beginning tonight and continuing into the wee hours of the morning Friday. However, it appears unlikely at this time that the additional rain will cause any crests on any rivers that are higher than the ones now being experienced.

Tuesday's risk of storms is expected to primarily affect areas along and north of US 412, according to the weather service. Flash flooding is already occurring on county roads in southern Moultrie County and more flash flooding is expected.

Numerous river flood warnings are in effect to the south and east of the Kansas City area, according to the weather service.

The primary threats with storms are localized flooding, hail up to 1 inch in diameter and lightning.

Forecasters at AccuWeather are predicting about 1.25 inches of rainfall during that time.

• More rain is coming Saturday, and it will be even cooler, with temperatures in the 40s. The tri-county region is expected to be hit fairly evenly with the rain: two inches in Wayne, Oakland and Macomb counties.
