...River flooding possible in western and southern Indiana...

Minor river flooding may develop during the coming days across
western and central Indiana. At this time it is uncertain whether the
degree flooding that will occur.

Moderate rainfall Thursday...possibly exceeding 2 inches...and
melting snow from the end of December could cause
minor river flooding. As of this afternoon all rivers were within
their banks and flooding would potentially begin by Sunday.

The warmer temperatures and increased flow will likely cause ice on
area rivers to begin to break up this week. This could result in
localized ice jam flooding to develop as the freshly dislodged ice
begins to move downstream.  Single digit temperatures will move back
in this weekend which could cause new ice formation.

Local concerns should monitor weather and river conditions through
the weekend and into next week. Flood statements and/or Flood
Warnings will be issued as more information becomes available.
