River Flooding to Quickly Return

The second January thaw of the month will bring another round of river flooding beginning Wednesday and continuing into early February.  The highest flood levels for this event may be in northern Indiana and along the Wabash River in western Indiana.  Flooding may develop along the Tippecanoe River downstream of Oakdale Dam.  This area has not flooded so far in January.  River flooding in central and southern Indiana is expected to be somewhat lower than experienced earlier in the month, but significant river flooding is possible again in portions of Indiana later in the week.

Additional rainfall of 1 to 1.5 inches is expected from this evening through Wednesday morning as a sharp cold front passes.  Such rainfall will produce local flooding, possibly as serious as seen on January 13th.
