Plenty of rain ahead; potential exists for flooding
•"The potential for heavy rainfall will increase later this week as a series of weather systems moves east along a front that should be positioned north of the Ohio River."
•"Rises on rivers...are likely with some of these rivers possibly reaching flood stage. There is a good chance for minor flooding of lowlands and creeks, especially those that are more susceptible to flooding."The official precipitation forecast from the Weather Prediction Center shows at least 1.5" for all of Michiana and surrounding areas. A good chunk of the region even falls in the "at least two inches" category, including Knox, Winamac, Rochester, Plymouth, Warsaw, Goshen, and Syracuse. In summary, we are expecting a healthy and soaking rainfall over a 3-day period beginning Thursday. No, significant flooding is not anticipated at this time. Yes, some flooding is certainly plausible for all rivers, creeks, streams, and low-lying locations.
