Hazardous Weather Outlook For BOONE County,IN

505 AM EDT Fri Apr 26 2019

 DAY ONE  Today and Tonight.

Outlook: Northwesterly wind gusts of 40 mph are possible at times
through the day. Some moderate river flooding will continue into 
the afternoon on the Mississinewa near Ridgeville, and nuisance 
flooding could continue through much of central Indiana through at 
least mid morning.
 
Hazards: Gusty winds. Ponding of water on roads and water on river
area roads.
 
Timing: Gusty winds should dissipate by around sunset. Moderate
flooding should end by early afternoon if not before.
 
Discussion: A low pressure system to the east of the area will keep a
tight gradient across central Indiana leading to a blustery day.
Rainfall yesterday and early this morning is leading to nuisance
flooding across much of central Indiana, with moderate flooding
occurring in the Ridgeville area.

 DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN  Saturday through Thursday.

Outlook: There are chances for thunderstorms from Monday through
Thursday. No severe storms are expected at this time, but lightning
is a threat from any storm that forms. Heavy rainfall that leads to
flooding could occur as well.
 
Discussion: A frontal system will approach and then stall near the
area, allowing a series of upper waves to interact with it bringing
rain and thunderstorm chances to the area. Should rain develop
repeatedly over the same area, more moderate flooding could develop.
 
 SPOTTER INFORMATION STATEMENT  

Spotter activation is not anticipated.
