HYDROLOGIC OUTLOOK
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE INDIANAPOLIS IN
416 PM EDT FRI AUG 12 2016

...HEAVY RAINFALL AND FLOODING POSSIBLE THIS WEEKEND INTO EARLY
NEXT WEEK...

Several rounds of showers and thunderstorms will move across
central Indiana this weekend and into early next week as a cold
front becomes nearly stationary over the region. The front will
interact with an upper level disturbance and deep tropical
moisture to produce the potential for heavy rainfall. The greatest
threat for heavy rainfall and flooding will be across the
southern half of central Indiana Saturday and Sunday possibly
lingering into early next week.

One to four inches of rainfall is possible over central Indiana
through Sunday...with locally higher amounts possible across areas
south of the Interstate 70 corridor. Additional rainfall will
likely cause flooding...especially along creeks and streams and in
low-lying and poor drainage areas. Flooding along the
Wabash...White and East Fork of the White Rivers will be possible
next week.

At this time...forecast confidence is high that heavy rain will
fall over parts of central Indiana this weekend. Confidence is
lower in the specific location of the heaviest rainfall at this
time...but that will grow over the next day or two as the event
nears.

Stay tuned to NOAA all hazards radio and your local media for the
latest updates on this weather situation.
