AT 2 PM STORM CHANCES ON THE RISE

Clouds are puffing up and storms are developing again Friday afternoon, targeting more of southern third of state. At 2 PM 45,000  foot storms are moving east from Bedford to near Greensburg.  Storms likely to gain some strength as afternoon heating continues, day 6 of warm and humid weather.  There could be a gusty or even a severe storm roaming this region of the state through 7 PM.

Heavy rain falling in parts of southern Indiana at rates of 1.50″ to 2″ per hour have prompted areal flood warnings until 6 PM.  Should storm continue to roam over same areas – flash flood is likely.
