...Widespread Rain and Localized Flooding Possible Wednesday Night
and Thursday...

Soaking rains will spread from south to north across the area
Wednesday afternoon and evening, and continue at least through the
night. By Thursday morning, the rain band will stop moving north,
resulting in rainfall totals of 3 to 4 inches where the heavier
rain continues through the day.

Runoff from this rainfall will result in localized flooding along
small streams, and rivers could approach flood stage later
Thursday and Friday.

Rivers most likely to rise include the Blue and Muscatatuck Rivers
in Indiana, the Green and Rough Rivers in Kentucky, and Drakes
Creek and Elkhorn Creek.

While the heaviest rain is currently expected to occur in southern
Indiana and north central Kentucky, there is still some
uncertainty in where the heavy rain band will set up. Interests
along area rivers should continue to monitor the latest forecasts.
