River flooding may develop this week in central and southern Indiana. The combination of melting snow and rain on Tuesday and much of Tuesday night may cause river flooding to develop by Wednesday. At this time flooding is expected to be rather limited. However if temperatures rise into the middle to upper 40s or higher and accompanied with an inch or more of rainfall...significant flooding could develop. As of early Monday afternoon...streams and rivers remained low..Snow depth ranged from less than an inch near the Ohio River in extreme southern Indiana to more than 10 inches in central Indiana. Water equivalent of the snow pack in central 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. If drainage culverts remain covered with snow and/or debris...local flood problems may develop.
