Flood Watch continues with heavy rain Tuesday night then dry time

FLOOD WATCH CONTINUES

A Flood Watch continues through 8 a.m. Wednesday. The rainfall is also picking up again late Tuesday. It is pouring in Monroe County just after 5 p.m. Tuesday. I'm posting the view from our cam at Fourwinds Lakeside Inn & Marina on Lake Monroe. Soggy!

HEAVY RAIN TONIGHT

The rain will be heavier and spreading northeast this evening and not easing up until pre-dawn Wednesday. Additional rainfall of 1" to 2" is possible before a dry time arrives Wednesday.

Rainfall amounts are nearing 1" late Tuesday afternoon, especially over areas that received heavy, wet snowfall of 10"+ Saturday. The ground is saturated and any additional rainfall going forward will only bring on more flooding.

WIND SHIFT BRINGS DRY TIME

A wind shift will reach Indianapolis around 9 p.m. tonight and that signals the arrival of drier air. It will be slow to work in but with time - the rain will settle south and end by sunrise.
