A wind shifting cold front has moved south of Indianapolis just after 5pm Thursday and WILL STALL later tonight. This will be the focus for renewed rains that become heavy overnight. Coverage will surge to nearly 90% after midnight.

The LATEST rainfall numbers are in and still point to the HIGHEST totals south. From our GRAF model, totals exceed 4″ in southcentral Indiana after two waves of rain ending early Saturday.
