National Weather Service radar indicates south central Indiana could receive another two inches of heavy rain this weekend.

The National Weather Service in Indianapolis has issued a flash flood warning for Davies, Greene, Knox, Lawrence Martin and Monroe counties until 11:30 p.m. Saturday.

Radar indicates an area of very heavy rainfall is moving into southwest and south central Indiana, which has already received 2 to 4 inches of rainfall since Friday evening. Because the ground is already saturated, the conditions could cause flash flooding in Bedford, Bloomington, Vincennes, Bloomfield, Shoals and Washington. An additional 1 to 2 inches are possible.

Salt Creek is high, and other smaller waterways around Nashville have already flooded. Excessive runoff will cause other small creeks, streams and country roads to flood.
