The remnants of Hurricane Isaac are expected to bring much-needed rainfall to Jackson County and all of south central Indiana over the next few days but may ruin some people’s outdoor plans for the Labor Day weekend.
Al Shipe, a hydrologist with the National Weather Service Forecast Center in Indianapolis, said Friday original projections of five to seven inches of rain for the area have been lowered; however, the potential for locally heavy downpours, thunderstorms and flash flooding remains.
“They’re actually moving the heavier rain back north so you’re looking at two to four inches over a three-day period,” he said of south central Indiana including Jackson County. “Saturday, Sunday and Monday will be most of a washout, but that doesn’t go to say you won’t see some breaks.”
