HYDROLOGIC OUTLOOK
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE INDIANAPOLIS IN
1059 AM EST TUE MAR 3 2015

...Elevated river levels and lowland flooding possible in
portions of central and southern Indiana...

The combination of melting snow and rain today and much of tonight
will cause streams and rivers ... especially in southern Indiana ...
to rise and approach bankfull levels from Wednesday through
Sunday.

At this time flooding is expected to be rather limited.  However if
temperatures rise into the upper 40s and lower 50s accompanied
by more than an inch of rainfall...significant flooding may develop.

As of late Tuesday morning...streams and rivers remained at low
levels. Snow depth ranged from less than an inch near the Ohio River
in southern Indiana to more than 9 inches in central Indiana.  Water
equivalent of the snow pack in central Indiana was at least an inch
in several areas.

The ground remains frozen in much of the state and will likely
remain frozen during this rain event.  As a result, almost all of the
rain and melting snow will run directly into the streams.  Local
flood problems may develop if drainage culverts are covered by
piles of snow or debris.

Local concerns should monitor weather and river conditions through
at least Thursday. Flood warnings and statements will be issued as
necessary.

For detailed flood information go to weather.gov/ind on the web. From
the blue menu bar on the left side of the page...click on rivers and
lakes.
