There will also be a risk for severe weather as there is a Slight Risk (Level 2 of 5) in southern Indiana, with everyone else along and south of I-70 in a Marginal Risk (Level 1). The main concern will be isolated tornadoes, but damaging winds will also be a threat.

Concerns for flooding are definitely in the mix with instances of flash flooding possible. Use caution while traveling on the roads late Tuesday and Wednesday. We’re expecting from 1-3 inches, with locally higher amounts possible, across much of Indiana with this system.
