The heaviest rainfall will likely fall south of the parkways, with pockets of heavy rain farther north. On top of what was picked up on Monday, about two to three inches of rain will be possible for those along and south of the parkways. Closer to the Ohio River, expect about another inch or two. For most in Southern Indiana, less than a half inch is expected.
