Indianapolis -- More heavy rain is expected to overspread Indiana on Friday night and into the day on Saturday, heightening the flood threat across the region.

A strong low-pressure system with ample moisture will move through the area. More than 2 inches of rain could fall in central Indiana.

Several flood watches and warnings were issued as rain began falling Friday morning.

The heaviest rain is expected to fall from Friday night through Saturday morning.

There could be a couple of rounds of thunderstorms as the storm system moves through the area. The storms are not expected to be severe, but they will include very heavy rain.

Rainfall of 2 inches or more will likely again cause street flooding, because the ground is saturated and there is no place for the water to go.

River flooding, which is still ongoing in central and southern Indiana after last week's heavy rains, are expected to be worsened by the latest round of heavy rain.

As the storm system pulls away late Saturday, there could be some snow showers or snow flurries, but they will be short-lived.
