PROBABILISTIC HYDROLOGIC OUTLOOK
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE PADUCAH KY
330 PM CDT SAT OCT 11 2014

...RAINFALL TOTALS NOT EXPECTED TO PRODUCE WIDESPREAD FLOODING...

ALTHOUGH RAIN CHANCES ARE EXPECTED TO SLOWLY INCREASE ACROSS THE
REGION OVER THE NEXT DAY OR TWO WITH THE BEST CHANCES BEING
MONDAY INTO MONDAY EVENING, FORECAST RAINFALL TOTALS ARE NOT
EXPECTED TO EXCEED FLASH FLOOD GUIDANCE VALUES. WITH THE PASSAGE
OF A STRONG COLD FRONT ON MONDAY, LOCALLY HEAVY RAINFALL IS
POSSIBLE IN THE VICINITY OF STRONG TO SEVERE THUNDERSTORMS, BUT
WIDESPREAD FLOODING IS NOT ANTICIPATED. LOW LYING AND FLOOD PRONE
AREAS MAY BRIEFLY EXPERIENCE LOCALIZED FLOODING, BUT NOTHING WIDESPREAD.

WITH THIS IN MIND, THIS WILL BE THE LAST PROBABILISTIC HYDROLOGIC
OUTLOOK ISSUED FOR THIS EVENT UNLESS FUTURE MODEL RUNS INDICATE
OTHERWISE.
