Rain continues into Sunday

14 First Alert 2/27 at 10pm

EVANSVILLE, Ind. (WFIE) - Heavy rain and thunderstorms remain possible through Sunday morning, then the rain will become lighter and more scattered Sunday afternoon before tapering off overnight Sunday night.

The main concern will be flooding due to the heavy rain. Most of the Tri-State will probably pick up 1.5 to 2.5 inches of rain from this system, and isolated totals closer to 3 inches are possible, mainly east of I-69. A Flood Watch remains in effect for most of the Tri-State until midnight Sunday night.

Despite the rain, Sunday will be unseasonably warm with high temperatures in the mid 60s. As the rain starts to move out Sunday night, cooler, drier air will take over, and our temperatures will drop into the mid to upper 30s by Monday morning. Monday will be mostly sunny with high temperatures in the upper 40s to low 50s.
