FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WANE)- A moisture-rich storm system moved into the area on Sunday bringing heavy rain, thunder and flooding, and it’s not finished yet.

Driven by an upper-level area of low pressure, which is a pocket of colder air high in the atmosphere, more periods of off-and-on rain will linger over the next couple of days.

Chances for heavier precipitation return on Tuesday as rain bands on the northeast side of the system move across the area through Wednesday. The heaviest of the rain is expected to fall east of I-69 and south of US-24. Flood alerts are already in effect.

In the last two days, Fort Wayne has seen 2.12 inches of rain fall (Total through 8:30 pm). Here are some other reports as of 5:30 pm:
