Hydrologic Outlook

...INCREASED RISK FOR FLOODING THIS WEEK DUE TO MULTIPLE ROUNDS OF
MODERATE TO HEAVY RAINFALL...

Minor flooding is already occurring on the Ohio River at Tell City
as well as the Rolling Fork River near Boston. The Ohio River is
also forecast to reach minor flood stage at McAlpine Upper/Lower
by midweek. A Flood Warning is also in effect for the Ohio River
at Cannelton Lock and Dam.

In general, many other river forecast points in southern Indiana
and central Kentucky are forecast to go into minor flood. Depending
on the location of the heaviest rainfall later this week, some
rivers could reach moderate flood stage. Confidence in minor
flooding is high, and confidence in moderate flooding is medium.

The main risk for heavy rainfall across southern Indiana and
central Kentucky will be from Wednesday into next weekend.
Multiple rounds of moderate to heavy rainfall are possible in this
time frame. Rainfall amounts exceeding 3 inches are possible, with
higher totals possible west of I-65 and across southern Indiana. This
would exacerbate flooding problems in low-lying areas and near rivers
and creeks.

Stay tuned to the latest rainfall and river forecasts in the
coming days. Find the latest information at www.weather.gov.
