TOTAL RAINFALL BETWEEN 1 AND LOCALLY 4 INCHES THROUGH MONDAY
NIGHT AREAWIDE. AGAIN...THE HIGHEST TOTALS ARE EXPECTED ALONG AND
NORTH OF THE OHIO RIVER.

AREA RIVERS...STREAMS...AND CREEKS WILL SEE SIGNIFICANT RISES
OVER THE COMING DAYS. SOME RIVERS ACROSS SOUTHERN INDIANA AND
CENTRAL KENTUCKY ARE LIKELY TO RISE ABOVE FLOOD STAGE AND WILL
REMAIN HIGH THROUGH NEXT WEEK. AS THESE REPEATED ROUNDS OF RAIN
