HYDROLOGIC OUTLOOK

...River flooding possible in central and southern Indiana...

River flooding may develop this week in central and southern Indiana.

The combination of melting snow and rain on Tuesday and much of
Tuesday night may cause river flooding to develop by Wednesday.  At
this time flooding is expected to be rather limited.  However if
temperatures rise into the middle to upper 40s or higher and
accompanied with an inch or more of rainfall...significant flooding
could develop.

As of early Monday afternoon...streams and rivers remained low..Snow
depth ranged from less than an inch near the Ohio River in extreme
southern Indiana to more than 10 inches in central Indiana.  Water
equivalent of the snow pack in central was at least an inch in
several areas.

The ground remains frozen in much of the state and will likely
remain frozen during this rain event.  As a result, almost all of the
rain and melting snow will run directly into the streams.  If
drainage culverts remain covered with snow and/or debris...local
flood problems may develop.

Local concerns should monitor weather and river conditions through
at least Thursday. Flood statements and/or Flood Warnings
will be issued as necessary as more information becomes available.

For detailed flood information go to weather.gov/ind on the web. From
the blue menu bar on the left side of the page...click on rivers and
lakes.
