TIMING:  Waves of rain are continuing to pour into southern Indiana.  As a warm front lifts north during the day, more unstable air with lots of moisture will drift north along with it.  Late afternoon into early evening will be the window of opportunity for the strong thunderstorms with gusty wind to move through.

After midnight, the heaviest rain, and threat for thunderstorms will wind down.  Scattered rain showers will last through Sunday morning.  By Sunday afternoon, colder air arrives, and we could see flurries, and/or snow showers, but no accumulation is expected with that.
