...SIGNIFICANT SNOW ACCUMULATIONS POSSIBLE MID WEEK...

ANOTHER WINTER STORM POSES THE POTENTIAL FOR SIGNIFICANT SNOW
ACCUMULATIONS WEDNESDAY AND WEDNESDAY NIGHT. A STRONG COLD FRONT
WILL SWEEP ACROSS THE QUAD STATE REGION TUESDAY NIGHT. IN ITS
WAKE...TEMPERATURES WILL RAPIDLY DROP BELOW FREEZING EARLY
WEDNESDAY.

AS THE COLD AIR RUSHES IN BEHIND THE FRONT...RAIN IS FORECAST TO
CHANGE OVER TO A PERIOD OF SLEET BEFORE TRANSITIONING TO SNOW
WEDNESDAY MORNING. BY WEDNESDAY AFTERNOON...THE PRECIPITATION
SHOULD BE IN THE FORM OF SNOW ACROSS ALL BUT SOUTHERN PORTIONS OF
WESTERN KENTUCKY...WHERE THE TRANSITION FROM SLEET TO SNOW MAY
NOT OCCUR UNTIL AFTERNOON. THE SNOW IS FORECAST TO TAPER OFF FROM
NORTHWEST TO SOUTHEAST WEDNESDAY NIGHT.

LESS THAN IDEAL CONFIDENCE IN A DAY 3 EVENT PRECLUDES AN EXACT
FORECAST OF SNOW AMOUNTS AT THIS TIME. HOWEVER...CONFIDENCE IS
GROWING THAT MODERATE TO HEAVY SNOW MAY RESULT IN POTENTIALLY
SIGNIFICANT SNOW ACCUMULATIONS ACROSS ALL OR PART OF THE QUAD
STATE REGION WEDNESDAY AND WEDNESDAY NIGHT. CONTINUE TO MONITOR
LATER FORECASTS ON THIS DEVELOPING WINTER WEATHER EVENT.

HYDROLOGIC OUTLOOK
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE INDIANAPOLIS IN
819 PM EST SUN MAR 1 2015

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

River flooding may develop during the coming days in central and
southern Indiana.

Increasing temperatures on Tuesday will allow for rapid melting of
the current snow pack across central Indiana. Additionally...forecast
rainfall of up to one inch Tuesday and Tuesday night will exacerbate
any flooding concerns.

As of Sunday evening...snow depth values were estimated to be around
8 to 10 inches across the northern reaches of the Wabash and White
Rivers. Central and southern Indiana snow depth values appear to
be higher with values estimated around 12 to 14 inches. Estimates of
water content in the snow pack across range from 0.50 to 1.00 inches
across the north to possibly 1.00-1.25 inches in central and southern
portions of central Indiana.

The fairly deeply frozen ground...indicated by frost depth down to
eight inches at Indianapolis...will hinder the absorption of melting
snow and any rainfall. Therefore...any rainfall is expected to
quickly become runoff into area rivers and streams.

Local concerns should monitor weather and river conditions in the
coming week. 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.
