...FLASH FLOOD WATCH REMAINS IN EFFECT THROUGH THURSDAY EVENING...

This hazardous weather outlook is for central Indiana.

.DAY ONE...Tonight.

Outlook: Showers and a few thunderstorms are possible this evening
and early tonight that may produce heavy rain. Patchy fog is
possible later tonight.

Hazards: Flash flooding. Heavy rainfall. Lightning. Patchy fog.

Timing: Thunderstorms are possible until 11 pm. Patchy fog is
possible after 2 am.

Discussion: A surface front and daytime heating will keep scattered showers
and a few thunderstorms over central Indiana until a couple hours
after sunset. The saturated ground and light winds overnight will
produce patchy fog during the overnight hours.


.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Wednesday through Monday.

Outlook: Thunderstorms are possible Wednesday through Monday, with
the brief exception of Thursday night into Friday. Heavy rain will
likely result in more flooding and flash flooding Wednesday through
Thursday. Additional heavy rain is possible over the weekend which
could worsen flooding conditions, increasing crests on area rivers
and lengthening the amount of time spent in flood.

There is a slight risk for severe storms on Wednesday, with damaging
winds and isolated tornadoes being the main threats. Additional
chances for severe weather may arrive for the weekend, but confidence
in this is low at this time.

Discussion: A couple of low pressure systems and several upper waves
will continue to keep showers and thunderstorms in the forecast for
central Indiana. Repeated heavy rainfall over the same areas will
continue flooding problems over the area and could make them even
worse.

.SPOTTER INFORMATION STATEMENT...

Spotter activation may be needed Wednesday afternoon or evening.
