* This rainfall combined with already saturated soils will lead to
excessive runoff which will cause already swollen rivers to rise
more. Significant and continued rises on the Ohio, the salt, the
Kentucky River, and the Green River are expected throughout the
week and into the weekend. In southern Indiana, the Blue River
and muscatatuck river will see significant rises later this
week.

A Flood Watch means there is a potential for flooding based on
current forecasts.

You should monitor later forecasts and be alert for possible
flood warnings. Those living in areas prone to flooding should be
prepared to take action should flooding develop.
