HYDROLOGIC OUTLOOK
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE LOUISVILLE KY
351 AM EST MON MAR 2 2015 /251 AM CST MON MAR 2 2015/

...SNOWMELT AND HEAVY RAINFALL COULD CAUSE FLOODING THIS WEEK...

THE REMAINING SNOW PACK ACROSS THE AREA CONTAINS ANYWHERE FROM ABOUT
A HALF INCH UP TO TWO INCHES OF LIQUID IN A FEW LOCATIONS.
TEMPERATURES TODAY WILL RISE TO THE 30S TO 40S HELPING TO MELT
MORE OF THIS SNOW PACK.

A NEW STORM SYSTEM WILL MOVE INTO THE REGION MONDAY NIGHT. AT THIS
TIME, IT APPEARS THAT SOUTHERN INDIANA WILL SEE ONE TO TWO INCHES OF
RAIN ON TUESDAY AND WEDNESDAY. KENTUCKY WILL SEE TWO TO THREE INCHES.
SINCE SOILS WILL BE SATURATED FROM SNOW MELT, THE NEW RAINS COULD
TRIGGER FLOODING.

IT APPEARS THAT FLOODING ON THE MAJOR RIVERS WOULD LIKELY START
AROUND MIDWEEK AND CONTINUE INTO THE WEEKEND. THIS WOULD AFFECT THE
SALT, GREEN, LICKING, AND KENTUCKY RIVER BASINS. MINOR FLOODING ON
THE OHIO RIVER COULD OCCUR AS WELL. RESIDENTS IN FLOOD PRONE AREAS
SHOULD CLOSELY MONITOR WATER LEVELS OVER THE COMING DAYS AND BE
PREPARED FOR POSSIBLE FLOODING BY MID TO LATE WEEK.
