...INCREASING FLOOD THREAT THIS WEEK DUE TO MULTIPLE ROUNDS OF
MODERATE TO HEAVY RAINFALL...

Minor flooding is already occurring on the Ohio River at Tell
City, and the McAlpine Upper gage at Louisville. The Ohio River
is forecast to reach minor flood stage at Cannelton tonight and
McAlpine Lower on Tuesday. Flood Warnings are in effect for the
Ohio River from near Madison downstream to the Mississippi.

In general, minor flooding is forecast later this week at many
other river forecast points in southern Indiana and central
Kentucky. Depending on the location of the heaviest rainfall,
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 totals exceeding 3 inches are likely, with
locally higher amounts. 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.
