343 AM EST SUN DEC 27 2015 /243 AM CST SUN DEC 27 2015/

...UNSETTLED AND WET THROUGH MONDAY NIGHT...

AFTER SEVERAL DAYS OF UNSETTLED WEATHER...TWO MORE ROUNDS OF
SHOWERS AND SOME THUNDERSTORMS ARE POISED TO AFFECT THE LOWER OHIO
VALLEY THROUGH MONDAY NIGHT. RAINFALL TOTALS THROUGH MONDAY NIGHT
ARE EXPECTED TO RANGE FROM 1.5 INCHES ACROSS SOUTHERN KENTUCKY TO 3
INCHES ACROSS SOUTHERN INDIANA. LOCALLY HIGHER AMOUNTS ARE
POSSIBLE.

A SLOW MOVING FRONT WILL DROP SOUTH INTO THE AREA TODAY...BRINGING
WIDESPREAD RAIN SHOWERS AND A CHANCE OF THUNDERSTORMS. RAINFALL
TOTALS MAY APPROACH 1 INCH TODAY. LOCALIZED WATER ISSUES SUCH AS
QUICK RISES ON STREAMS AND CREEKS AND PONDING ON ROADWAYS ARE
POSSIBLE...ESPECIALLY ACROSS SOUTHERN INDIANA AND FAR NORTH
CENTRAL KENTUCKY.

ON MONDAY...A MUCH STRONG WEATHER SYSTEM WILL BRING A LINE OF
SHOWERS AND THUNDERSTORMS THROUGH THE AREA DURING THE AFTERNOON
AND EARLY EVENING HOURS. THIS LINE MAY HAVE INTENSE RAINFALL
RATES...AND WHEN COMBINED WITH THE ALREADY SATURATED
GROUND...FLASH FLOODING MAY BE A CONCERN WITH THE HEAVIEST
THUNDERSTORMS.

AREA RIVERS...STREAMS...AND CREEKS HAVE RESPONDED SIGNIFICANTLY TO
THE RAINFALL SO FAR...AND WILL CONTINUE TO RISE OVER THE COMING
DAYS. MINOR FLOODING ON SOME RIVERS IS EXPECTED. FLOOD PRONE AND
LOW LYING AREAS WILL LIKELY EXPERIENCE STANDING WATER AT TIMES.

THOSE WITH HYDROLOGIC OR RIVER INTERESTS ARE URGED TO STAY UP TO
DATE ON THE LATEST FORECASTS.
