Flash flood threat continues with t-storms possible
INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. –Good Monday afternoon! It’s been a soggy day across central Indiana with rainfall totals exceeding two inches in the last 24 hours, especially southwest of Indianapolis. Three-day totals are greater than three inches with isolated higher totals of five inches of rainfall!
A Flash Flood Watch remains in effect through 8 p.m. Tuesday.
We’ll continue to see the batch of heaviest rain lift north across central Indiana through your Monday afternoon. Additional scattered showers and even a t-storm will be possible through this evening. A low pressure will lift across the area bringing a warm front through. There’s enough spin in the atmosphere to where there’s a low-end tornado threat across central Indiana this afternoon and evening. Anything that does happen to form would be brief given the poor dynamics. Flash flooding will still remain the highest threat.
Winds will increase as the low moves through and temperatures tonight will be in the low 70s with scattered rain and fog. Tuesday will also bring scattered showers and isolated t-storms with highs in the upper 70s.
Additional rainfall amounts of up to 1.5 inches are possible around Indianapolis with higher amounts north through Tuesday.
We’ll have a warm up through the week with slight rain chances Wednesday through Friday. A wetter system will move in this weekend with temperatures cooling to the 70s. –Danielle Dozier
