...Lowland river flooding and elevated stream levels likely in
central and southern Indiana...

Widespread lowland flooding is likely to return to much of central
and southern Indiana from late Tuesday through Friday.  Flooding in
southwest Indiana may continue into early April.  Flood levels are
expected to be lower in many areas than flooding experienced in late
February and early March. A few areas may see significant flooding.

Much of central and southern Indiana has received one-half to more
than 2 inches of precipitation in the form of rain and snow since
March 19th. The heaviest precipitation has fallen in southern
Indiana.  In addition...the significant snowfall that fell on
Saturday from west central to southeast Indiana had a liquid
equivalent of around 1 inch. Substantial melting of the snowpack
commenced on Sunday and will continue through this evening.

Rainfall of 1 to 2 inches with locally higher amounts is expected in
central and southern Indiana from this evening through late
Wednesday. Additional rain is expected Thursday and Friday. At
this time the heaviest rainfall is forecast to fall in west central
Indiana...especially late tonight through Tuesday night.

Extensive lowland river flooding impacts numerous river roads...
agricultural lands and river parks. Local concerns should monitor
weather and river conditions through Saturday. Flooding is a
possibility...not a certainty. Flood statements and/or flood
warnings will be issued as more information becomes available.
