...FLOOD WATCH IN EFFECT FROM WEDNESDAY MORNING THROUGH SUNDAY
MORNING...

The National Weather Service in Louisville has issued a

* Flood Watch for portions of Indiana and Kentucky, including
  the following areas, in Indiana, Clark, Crawford, Dubois,
  Floyd, Harrison, Jefferson, Orange, Perry, Scott, and
  Washington. In Kentucky, Allen, Anderson, Barren, Bourbon,
  Boyle, Breckinridge, Bullitt, Butler, Clark, Edmonson,
  Fayette, Franklin, Grayson, Green, Hancock, Hardin, Harrison,
  Hart, Henry, Jefferson, Jessamine, Larue, Logan, Marion,
  Meade, Mercer, Nelson, Nicholas, Ohio, Oldham, Scott, Shelby,
  Simpson, Spencer, Taylor, Trimble, Warren, Washington, and
  Woodford.

* From Wednesday morning through Sunday morning

* Several rounds of moderate to heavy rainfall are expected across
  the watch area from Wednesday through early Thursday. Additional
  rounds of showers and thunderstorms are expected late Thursday
  through late Saturday night. 3 to 6 inches of rainfall is
  expected through Sunday morning which result in excessive runoff
  and flooding.

* This rainfall combined with already saturated soils will lead to
  excessive runoff which will cause already swollen rivers to rise
  more. Significant and continued rises on the Ohio, the Salt, the
  Kentucky River, and the Green River are expected throughout the
  week and into the weekend. In southern Indiana, the Blue River
  and Muscatatuck River will see significant rises later this
  week.

PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS...

A Flood Watch means there is a potential for flooding based on
current forecasts.

You should monitor later forecasts and be alert for possible
Flood Warnings. Those living in areas prone to flooding should be
prepared to take action should flooding develop.
