HYDROLOGIC OUTLOOK
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE PADUCAH KY
502 AM CDT WED APR 1 2015

...HEAVY RAINFALL LIKELY THURSDAY NIGHT AND FRIDAY...

A WIDESPREAD HEAVY RAINFALL EVENT IS FORECAST TO OCCUR...MOSTLY ON
THURSDAY NIGHT AND FRIDAY. RAINFALL AMOUNTS BY FRIDAY EVENING ARE
CURRENTLY PREDICTED TO AVERAGE BETWEEN 1 AND 3 INCHES. THE
AXIS OF HEAVIEST RAINFALL MAY BE ALONG THE LOWER OHIO
VALLEY...FROM SOUTHWEST INDIANA INTO EXTREME SOUTHERN ILLINOIS AND
EXTREME WESTERN KENTUCKY. THE EXACT LOCATION OF THE HEAVIEST RAIN
WILL DEPEND ON THE MOVEMENT OF A COLD FRONT THAT WILL BECOME
NEARLY STATIONARY IN THE VICINITY OF THE LOWER OHIO VALLEY.

THE LARGER RIVERS ACROSS OUR REGION HAVE JUST FALLEN BELOW FLOOD
STAGE IN THE PAST COUPLE OF DAYS. THESE RIVERS ARE STILL
HIGH...SO THE UPCOMING HEAVY RAINFALL EVENT COULD HAVE SOME
IMPACT. IN ADDITION...THE SUBSOIL IS STILL VERY MOIST...WHICH MAY
CAUSE RAPID RUNOFF INTO THE SMALLER RIVERS AND STREAMS. FLOODING
OF LOW LYING AND FLOOD PRONE AREAS IS POSSIBLE.

PERSONS IN AND NEAR FLOOD PRONE AREAS SHOULD PAY ATTENTION TO
LATER FORECASTS AND OUTLOOKS.
