...SIGNIFICANT SNOW ACCUMULATIONS POSSIBLE MID WEEK...

ANOTHER WINTER STORM POSES THE POTENTIAL FOR SIGNIFICANT SNOW
ACCUMULATIONS WEDNESDAY AND WEDNESDAY NIGHT. A STRONG COLD FRONT
WILL SWEEP ACROSS THE QUAD STATE REGION TUESDAY NIGHT. IN ITS
WAKE...TEMPERATURES WILL RAPIDLY DROP BELOW FREEZING EARLY
WEDNESDAY.

AS THE COLD AIR RUSHES IN BEHIND THE FRONT...RAIN IS FORECAST TO
CHANGE OVER TO A PERIOD OF SLEET BEFORE TRANSITIONING TO SNOW
WEDNESDAY MORNING. BY WEDNESDAY AFTERNOON...THE PRECIPITATION
SHOULD BE IN THE FORM OF SNOW ACROSS ALL BUT SOUTHERN PORTIONS OF
WESTERN KENTUCKY...WHERE THE TRANSITION FROM SLEET TO SNOW MAY
NOT OCCUR UNTIL AFTERNOON. THE SNOW IS FORECAST TO TAPER OFF FROM
NORTHWEST TO SOUTHEAST WEDNESDAY NIGHT.

LESS THAN IDEAL CONFIDENCE IN A DAY 3 EVENT PRECLUDES AN EXACT
FORECAST OF SNOW AMOUNTS AT THIS TIME. HOWEVER...CONFIDENCE IS
GROWING THAT MODERATE TO HEAVY SNOW MAY RESULT IN POTENTIALLY
SIGNIFICANT SNOW ACCUMULATIONS ACROSS ALL OR PART OF THE QUAD
STATE REGION WEDNESDAY AND WEDNESDAY NIGHT. CONTINUE TO MONITOR
LATER FORECASTS ON THIS DEVELOPING WINTER WEATHER EVENT.

THE FORECAST CONTINUES TO INDICATE A WARM UP AND THE LIKELIHOOD
OF A PROLONGED RAINFALL EVENT THROUGH THE MIDDLE OF THE WEEK. THIS
RAIN...IN ADDITION TO THE MELTING OF THE CURRENT SNOW PACK...MEANS
A HEIGHTENED RISK FOR FLOODING FOR ALL OF EASTERN KENTUCKY. AS IT
STANDS NOW...FLOODING APPEARS MOST LIKELY ALONG PORTIONS OF THE
KENTUCKY AND CUMBERLAND RIVER BASINS BY THE MIDDLE OF THE WEEK.

ANOTHER WINTRY WEATHER SYSTEM IS BEGINNING TO TAKE SHAPE IN THE
FORECAST MID WEEK. AT THIS TIME...IT APPEARS THAT SIGNIFICANT
ACCUMULATING SNOW IS POSSIBLE WEDNESDAY NIGHT INTO THURSDAY.
HOWEVER...THERE IS STILL SOME UNCERTAINTY REGARDING THE EXACT
TRACK OF THIS STORM SYSTEM...SO STAY TUNED FOR THE LATEST UPDATES
AND POSSIBLE CHANGES TO THE FORECAST CONCERNING THIS STORM.

.SPOTTER INFORMATION STATEMENT...

SPOTTER ACTIVATION IS NOT ANTICIPATED.

...SNOWMELT AND HEAVY RAINFALL COULD CAUSE FLOODING THIS WEEK...

THE REMAINING SNOW PACK ACROSS THE AREA CONTAINS ANYWHERE FROM ABOUT
A HALF INCH UP TO TWO INCHES OF LIQUID IN A FEW LOCATIONS.
TEMPERATURES TODAY WILL RISE TO THE 30S TO 40S HELPING TO MELT
MORE OF THIS SNOW PACK.

A NEW STORM SYSTEM WILL MOVE INTO THE REGION MONDAY NIGHT. AT THIS
TIME, IT APPEARS THAT SOUTHERN INDIANA WILL SEE ONE TO TWO INCHES OF
RAIN ON TUESDAY AND WEDNESDAY. KENTUCKY WILL SEE TWO TO THREE INCHES.
SINCE SOILS WILL BE SATURATED FROM SNOW MELT, THE NEW RAINS COULD
TRIGGER FLOODING.

IT APPEARS THAT FLOODING ON THE MAJOR RIVERS WOULD LIKELY START
AROUND MIDWEEK AND CONTINUE INTO THE WEEKEND. THIS WOULD AFFECT THE
SALT, GREEN, LICKING, AND KENTUCKY RIVER BASINS. MINOR FLOODING ON
THE OHIO RIVER COULD OCCUR AS WELL. RESIDENTS IN FLOOD PRONE AREAS
SHOULD CLOSELY MONITOR WATER LEVELS OVER THE COMING DAYS AND BE
PREPARED FOR POSSIBLE FLOODING BY MID TO LATE WEEK.

...HEAVY RAIN AND FLOODING POSSIBLE THIS COMING WEEK...

A PROLONGED ROUND OF PRECIPITATION IS EXPECTED ACROSS EAST
KENTUCKY BETWEEN TUESDAY AND THURSDAY...AS A COLD FRONT SLOWLY
SHIFTS SOUTHEAST ACROSS THE REGION. IN GENERAL...TWO TO THREE
INCHES OF RAINFALL IS EXPECTED AT THIS TIME.

IN ADDITION TO THE HEAVY AMOUNTS OF RAIN...A FEW TO SEVERAL
INCHES OF SNOW REMAIN ON THE GROUND OVER MUCH OF EASTERN
KENTUCKY...WITH THIS SNOW HOLDING A SUBSTANTIAL AMOUNT OF WATER
CONTENT...PARTICULARLY ACROSS THE HIGHER ELEVATIONS BORDERING
VIRGINIA AND IN NEARBY PORTIONS OF VIRGINIA AND WEST VIRGINIA.
THESE HIGHER ELEVATION LOCATIONS ARE THE HEADWATER REGIONS FOR THE
CUMBERLAND...KENTUCKY...AND BIG SANDY RIVERS AND THIS MELTING
SNOWPACK WILL CONTRIBUTE SIGNIFICANTLY TO THE POTENTIAL RUNOFF
INTO THESE RIVERS THIS COMING WEEK.

SMALL STREAMS AND CREEKS WILL BE THE FIRST TO EXPERIENCE
SUBSTANTIAL RISES AND POSSIBLE FLOODING THIS COMING WEEK. AS THE
WATER COLLECTS INTO THE LARGER CREEKS AND RIVERS...SIGNIFICANT
RISES AND AT LEAST MINOR RIVER FLOODING IS LIKELY. MORE
SIGNIFICANT RIVER FLOODING IS POSSIBLE...BUT THE SEVERITY OF ANY
RIVER FLOODING IS STILL IN QUESTION AND WILL DEPEND SIGNIFICANTLY
ON WHERE THE HEAVIEST RAIN FALLS.

THIS POTENTIAL FLOOD THREAT.
