A frontal boundary over Central Indiana will be the focus for showers and thunderstorms tonight across Central Indiana. Some of the showers and storms could produce heavy rain and flooding. More heavy rain is possible Sunday and Sunday night as a cold front interacts with record deep moisture for late April. Multiple rounds of thunderstorms are expected through Sunday night on top of rain that has already fallen. Several inches of rain are possible over all or parts of the watch area.

A Flash Flood Watch means that conditions may develop that lead to flash flooding. Flash flooding is a very dangerous situation. You should monitor later forecasts and be prepared to take action should Flash Flood Warnings be issued.
