HYDROLOGIC OUTLOOK
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE JACKSON KY
1029 PM EDT MON MAR 9 2015

...TWO PERIODS OF HEAVY RAIN THIS WEEK WILL LEAD TO CONTINUED HIGH
WATER AND POSSIBLY NEW FLOODING BY THE END OF THE WEEK...

OVER THE PAST FEW WEEKS...SOUTH CENTRAL AND EASTERN KENTUCKY HAS
RECEIVED SEVERAL EPISODES OF RAIN AND SNOW...AND THE GROUND IS
SATURATED. THE SATURATED SOIL WILL CAUSE MUCH OF THE ADDITIONAL
RAINFALL THIS WEEK TO RUNOFF INTO AREA CREEKS AND RIVERS.

HEAVY RAINFALL IS LIKELY ACROSS SOUTH CENTRAL AND EASTERN
KENTUCKY THROUGH THE END OF THE WEEK. TWO RAINFALL EVENTS...ONE
STARTING EARLY TUESDAY AND CONTINUING INTO WEDNESDAY IS EXPECTED
TO PRODUCE 1 TO 2 INCHES...WITH LOCALLY HIGHER AMOUNTS POSSIBLE.
THIS RAINFALL IS EXPECTED TO CAUSE SEVERAL AREA CREEKS AND RIVERS
TO RISE TO NEAR BANKFULL...OR POSSIBLY FLOOD.

THE SECOND ROUND OF RAIN SHOULD MOVE NORTH INTO SOUTH CENTRAL AND
EASTERN KENTUCKY THURSDAY MORNING AND CONTINUE INTO FRIDAY NIGHT.
AN ADDITIONAL 1 TO 2 INCHES IS POSSIBLE WITH THIS SYSTEM...
WITH LOCALLY HIGHER AMOUNTS. THERE REMAINS CONSIDERABLE UNCERTAINTY
WITH THE TRACK OF THE LOW PRESSURE SYSTEM THAT WILL BRING THE
RAINFALL DURING THE SECOND HALF OF THE WEEK...AND EVENTUAL
RAINFALL AMOUNTS. IF THIS SECOND ROUND OF RAINFALL
MATERIALIZES...IT SHOULD AGAIN CAUSE SEVERAL AREA CREEKS AND
RIVERS TO RISE TO NEAR BANKFULL...OR POSSIBLY FLOOD.

STAY TUNED TO UPDATED FORECASTS AND STATEMENTS AS FLOOD WATCHES
OR WARNINGS MAY BE ISSUED AT A LATER TIME. AS ALWAYS...IF FLOODING
IS OBSERVED OR A WARNING IS ISSUED...MOVE TO HIGHER GROUND
IMMEDIATELY. NEVER ATTEMPT TO CROSS A FLOODED ROADWAY. TURN
AROUND...DON`T DROWN!
