Rain, small chance for severe weather will remain till Thursday – Indy News

Statewide-Rain will continue in most parts of the state throughout a good part of Tuesday and Wednesday.

“We are talking about rain which can reduce visibility while driving and make it difficult for you. This can lead to flooding in some low lying areas. You want to slow down, “said Jason Puma, a meteorologist with the National Weather Service in Indianapolis.

Puma expects one to two inches of rain in most parts of the state by the end of Wednesday.

“We can’t blow an isolated storm on Wednesday afternoon or morning. The main threat could be harmful winds, but we are not expecting completely much severe weather. There will then be a chance of rain until Thursday and Friday before going to Saturday. After Saturday, we will look for dry weather, “said Puma.

From 8 a.m. Tuesday to 8 a.m. Wednesday, the National Weather Service listed Central Indiana as a mild risk for severe weather. The far south of the state is at slight risk.

From 6 a.m. Wednesday to 6 a.m. Thursday, the National Weather Service listed the entire western part of the state and most of Central Indiana at slight risk for severe weather.

A marginal risk for severe weather means isolated severe thunderstorms are possible but limited in coverage, intensity or duration.

The slightest risk for severe weather means that there may be sporadic severe storms but usually short-lived and not widespread.
