HYDROLOGIC OUTLOOK

312 PM EDT THU JUN 18 2015 /212 PM CDT THU JUN 18 2015/

...VERY HEAVY RAINFALL LIKELY FRIDAY NIGHT THROUGH SATURDAY NIGHT
OVER SOUTHERN INDIANA AND CENTRAL KENTUCKY...

THE REMNANTS OF TROPICAL CYCLONE BILL WILL BRING PERIODS OF
TORRENTIAL RAINFALL TO THE REGION BEGINNING LATE FRIDAY NIGHT AND
CONTINUING THROUGH SATURDAY NIGHT.

PRIOR TO THE REMNANTS OF BILL ARRIVING...ROUNDS OF THUNDERSTORMS
WILL CONTINUE THIS AFTERNOON AND AGAIN ON FRIDAY PRODUCING POCKETS
OF LOCALLY HEAVY RAINFALL. THESE INITIAL ROUNDS OF STORMS WILL
KEEP THE GROUND SATURATED IN SOME AREAS.

OUR CURRENT PROJECTIONS SUGGEST THAT AN AVERAGE BASIN RAINFALL OF
2 TO 4 INCHES CAN BE EXPECTED. HOWEVER...LOCALLY HIGHER AMOUNTS OF
5 INCHES WILL BE POSSIBLE IN SPOTS. THE AXIS OF HEAVIEST
PRECIPITATION IS LIKELY TO SET UP ALONG THE OHIO RIVER.

GIVEN THE INITIAL WET CONDITIONS FROM THE LAST SEVERAL DAYS OF
RAINFALL...THE ADDITIONAL WIDESPREAD RAINS ASSOCIATED WITH THE
REMNANTS OF TROPICAL STORM BILL MAY RESULT IN FLOODING ISSUES OVER
SOUTHERN INDIANA AND CENTRAL KENTUCKY. THE HIGHEST RISK OF
FLOODING WOULD BE FROM FRIDAY NIGHT THROUGH SATURDAY NIGHT. THE
RAINFALL WILL ALSO LEAD TO QUICK RISES ON AREA CREEKS AND STREAMS
IN ALL LOCAL RIVER BASINS.

STAY TUNED TO NOAA ALL HAZARDS WEATHER RADIO AND YOUR LOCAL MEDIA
FOR THE LATEST INFORMATION ON THIS WEATHER SITUATION.
