...Additional Rainfall Threatens Renewed Flooding Over Portions of
the Area for the Latter Half of the Week.

Another complex storm system moving through the Ohio Valley region
will generate multiple waves of low pressure along a slow moving
surface cold frontal boundary tonight through Thursday night. This
will produce several rounds of rainfall from tonight through
Thursday, with the rain being heavy at times.

The cumulative effect may eventually lead to flooding concerns.
At this point, it is expected that the greatest rainfall amounts
will fall from Wednesday through Thursday evening. All together
between 1 and 3 inches of rain could fall over a large portion of
the area. The lingering effect of runoff over an already very
saturated ground could cause area streams and rivers to rise to
near bankfull and/or possibly flood late in the week and into the
upcoming weekend. At this time the greatest risk for flooding
issues appears to be centered over the Kentucky and Cumberland
river basins.

A fair amount of uncertainty remains with respect to the
timing and track of each round of rainfall. Keep updated on the
excessive rainfall potential through the week. Flood watches or
warnings may need to be issued at a later time.
