Heavy rain possible due to remnants of tropical storm

The National Weather Service in Indianapolis says that much of our area is under a marginal risk of excessive rainfall and rapid flooding today.

Joe Nield, meteorologist with the National Weather Service in Indianapolis told our news-gathering partners at Network Indiana that southern Indiana will receive a glancing blow from the remnants of Hurricane Ida. Nield says the heaviest rain will likely be along the Ohio River.

Southeastern Bartholomew, southern Decatur, Jackson and Jennings counties are all within the marginal risk area, which means a 5 to 10 percent chance of heavy rain and flooding. Areas further to the southeast are under a slight risk, with Kentucky under a moderate risk.
