Expected rainfall of 2 to 4 inches is likely

Waves of moisture interacting with a quasi-stationary boundary will bring periods of moderate to heavy rainfall to the Ohio Valley Wednesday through Thursday night. Heavy rainfall associated with a cold front Thursday afternoon through Thursday night could result in isolated flash flooding. Expected rainfall of 2 to 4 inches is likely to result in river flooding late this week continuing into next week. The National Weather Service in Louisville has issued a 

* Flood Watch for portions of Indiana and Kentucky

* From Wednesday evening through late Thursday night 

* Moderate to heavy rainfall is expected to produce 2 to 4 inches of rain with locally higher amounts possible. 

* Minor flooding is likely, including the possibility for significant ponding of water on roadways. Expect water issues in low lying and poor drainage areas. Some smaller creeks and streams will likely see quick rises. Longer duration river flooding is likely to continue into next week.


A Flood Watch means there is a potential for flooding based on current forecasts. You should monitor later forecasts and be alert for possible Flood Warnings. Those living in areas prone to flooding should be prepared to take action should flooding develop.
