Heavy rainfall, flash flooding possible

Bartholomew County Emergency Management is warning residents that heavy rain and flash flooding is possible for the next few days.

Rain with embedded storms is possible today and tonight and a few storms may produce small hail.

Heavy rain and embedded thunderstorms are possible late Thursday through Saturday morning.

Forecasters are predicting 2 to 4 inches of rain is possible across the area with locally higher amounts focused over southern portions of central Indiana. All of Bartholomew County is in the 3-inch to 4-inch range at this time.

Flash flooding is possible during periods of heavy rainfall, especially in low-lying and flood-prone areas and there are flooding concerns through the weekend.
