...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.
The Ohio River is forecast to reach minor flood stage at Cannelton
and McAlpine Upper (Louisville) tonight. Flood Warnings are in
effect for the Ohio River from near Madison all the way downstream
to the Mississippi.

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 the weekend.
Multiple rounds of moderate to heavy rainfall are possible in this
time frame. Rainfall amounts exceeding 3 inches will be possible.
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.
