Areal Flood Watch

Statement as of 2:59 AM CST on February 22, 2018

Expires 7:00 AM EST on February 25, 2018


... Flood Watch remains in effect through Sunday morning...

The Flood Watch continues for

* portions of southern Indiana and central Kentucky

* through Sunday morning

* moderate to heavy rainfall is expected across the watch area
early this morning. Additional rounds of showers and
thunderstorms are expected late Thursday night through late
Saturday night. An additional 2 to 4 inches of rainfall is
expected through Sunday morning which result in excessive runoff
and flooding.

* This rainfall combined with already saturated soils will lead
to excessive runoff which will cause already swollen rivers to
rise more. Significant and continued rises on the Ohio,
Rolling Fork, Kentucky, and green rivers, as well as other
area streams, are expected throughout the week and into the
weekend. In southern Indiana, the Blue River and muscatatuck
river may see significant rises later this week.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

A Flood Watch means there is a potential for flooding based on
current forecasts.

Monitor later forecasts and be alert for possible warnings. Those
living in areas prone to flooding should be prepared to take
action should flooding develop or worsen.
