This winter (Dec-Jan-Feb) has been wetter and warmer than normal across the Ohio Valley.  Across southern Indiana and north central Kentucky, precipitation amounts have been 2"-6" above normal over the past 90 days (see map below).  South central Kentucky has seen precipitation amounts of 4"-12"+ above normal over the past 90 days (see map below).  

As we head into Spring 2020 with well saturated grounds and streamflows running near or above normal, chances for minor flooding are above normal.  The following graphics are river flood outlooks valid through May 2020.  For the full text version of the final Spring Hydrologic Outlook, click here.
