...SNOWMELT AND HEAVY RAIN COULD CAUSE FLOODING NEXT WEEK...

THE SNOWPACK IN THE AREA CONTAINS BETWEEN A HALF AND TWO INCHES OF
LIQUID. THE SNOW WILL CONTINUE TO MELT INTO THE WEEKEND AS
TEMPERATURES ARE FORECAST TO RISE ABOVE FREEZING AND INTO THE 40S ON
SUNDAY. AT THE SAME TIME, MIXED PRECIPITATION WILL MOVE INTO THE
REGION SATURDAY NIGHT AND CHANGE OVER TO ALL RAIN ON MONDAY. UP TO A
HALF INCH OF LIQUID IS EXPECTED. THE COMBINATION OF SNOWMELT AND
RAIN WILL SATURATE THE GROUND AND CAUSE RISES ON SMALL STREAMS.

MONDAY NIGHT, ANOTHER STORM SYSTEM IS EXPECTED TO MOVE IN WITH MORE
RAIN AND SNOW CHANGING OVER TO ALL RAIN ON TUESDAY. THE RAIN WILL
CONTINUE INTO THURSDAY BEFORE IT CHANGES BACK INTO SNOW BEFORE
ENDING. THERE IS EVEN A CHANCE OF THUNDERSTORMS ON TUESDAY. THE
TOTAL AMOUNT OF LIQUID PRECIPITATION IS BETWEEN ONE AND THREE
ADDITIONAL INCHES.

THIS SECOND STORM COULD TRIGGER WIDESPREAD FLOODING, ESPECIALLY IN
AREAS WITH HEAVIER SNOWPACKS. THE FLOODING ON THE MAJOR RIVERS WOULD
BEGIN ON WEDNESDAY. AT THIS TIME IT IS TOO EARLY TO PREDICT WHERE
THE HEAVIEST RAINS WILL FALL NEAR THE OHIO RIVER. THE NATIONAL
WEATHER SERVICE WILL CONTINUE TO WATCH THESE DEVELOPING STORMS
CLOSELY THIS WEEKEND. RESIDENTS IN FLOOD PRONE AREAS SHOULD EXPECT
TO BEGIN TO WATCH WATER LEVELS NEXT WEEK.
