...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, Cannelton, and Louisville. Flood Warnings are in effect for
the Ohio River all the way from near Parkersburg, West Virginia
to the Mississippi River.

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, including the Ohio, 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 late tonight through Saturday
night. Multiple rounds of moderate to heavy rainfall are possible
in this time frame. Rainfall totals exceeding 3 inches are likely.
This would create 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 weather.gov/lmk.
