HYDROLOGIC OUTLOOK
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE JACKSON KY
454 PM EST SUN MAR 1 2015

...HEAVY RAIN AND FLOODING POSSIBLE THIS COMING WEEK...

A PROLONGED ROUND OF PRECIPITATION IS EXPECTED ACROSS EAST
KENTUCKY BETWEEN TUESDAY AND THURSDAY...AS A COLD FRONT SLOWLY
SHIFTS SOUTHEAST ACROSS THE REGION. IN GENERAL...TWO TO THREE
INCHES OF RAINFALL IS EXPECTED AT THIS TIME.

IN ADDITION TO THE HEAVY AMOUNTS OF RAIN...A FEW TO SEVERAL
INCHES OF SNOW REMAIN ON THE GROUND OVER MUCH OF EASTERN
KENTUCKY...WITH THIS SNOW HOLDING A SUBSTANTIAL AMOUNT OF WATER
CONTENT...PARTICULARLY ACROSS THE HIGHER ELEVATIONS BORDERING
VIRGINIA AND IN NEARBY PORTIONS OF VIRGINIA AND WEST VIRGINIA.
THESE HIGHER ELEVATION LOCATIONS ARE THE HEADWATER REGIONS FOR THE
CUMBERLAND...KENTUCKY...AND BIG SANDY RIVERS AND THIS MELTING
SNOWPACK WILL CONTRIBUTE SIGNIFICANTLY TO THE POTENTIAL RUNOFF
INTO THESE RIVERS THIS COMING WEEK.

SMALL STREAMS AND CREEKS WILL BE THE FIRST TO EXPERIENCE
SUBSTANTIAL RISES AND POSSIBLE FLOODING THIS COMING WEEK. AS THE
WATER COLLECTS INTO THE LARGER CREEKS AND RIVERS...SIGNIFICANT
RISES AND AT LEAST MINOR RIVER FLOODING IS LIKELY. MORE
SIGNIFICANT RIVER FLOODING IS POSSIBLE...BUT THE SEVERITY OF ANY
RIVER FLOODING IS STILL IN QUESTION AND WILL DEPEND SIGNIFICANTLY
ON WHERE THE HEAVIEST RAIN FALLS.
