(Lawrenceburg, Ind.) – An overnight deluge of rain showers is spilling over into the Monday morning commute, causing delays and ponding on tri-state roads.
The National Weather Service has much of the Eagle 99.3 listening area under a Flood Advisory until 8:15 a.m. The affected areas include Ohio, Switzerland, southeastern Dearborn, Boone, Carroll, southwestern Gallatin, and western Hamilton counties.
Meteorologists said as of 5:10 a.m. radar indicated moderate rainfall from Hamilton to Rising Sun brought up to two inches of rain. Another half to three-quarters of an inch were expected through daybreak.
The heavy rains have caused ponding on various roads. Ponding was blamed for a car spinning out on eastbound Interstate 74 at Rybolt Road.
A tree branch had fallen on North Branch Road off State Road 156 in Switzerland County, as well as a branch on State Road 148/Sunnyside Avenue in Aurora.
Monday’s high temperature is expected to reach 69 before becoming partly cloudy and falling to 52 overnight. A 30 percent chance of rain remains Tuesday with a high of 67.
