Periods of rain through early Tuesday
The Ohio: Predictions for the Ohio River in Louisville are little changed since yesterday. It’s expected to reach flood stage (23 feet) midday Tuesday and crest just under 30 feet Friday. Those forecasts take into account past rains plus expected rain for the next few days.
The forecasts: The human and model forecasts are all in line today. They expect 2″ to 2.5″ to fall from today through early Tuesday. At this time, I don’t see any reason to question those forecasts. So, if you have interests in the Ohio’s flood plain, get prepared.
Data: Current level (3 P.M.) just under 21′ and rising Flood Stage is 23′ expected around Noon Tuesday Crest: just under 30′ Friday Moderate Flood Stage is 30′
Rainfall greater than 2.5″ could increase the expected crest.
