Here's the "Hydrologic Outlook" straight from the National Weather Service:
Hydrologic Outlook National Weather Service Paducah KY 345 AM CST Mon Feb 4 2019 ...HEAVY RAINFALL AND FLOODING POSSIBLE WEDNESDAY THROUGH THURSDAY... Wednesday through Thursday, several upper air systems will move over the area and interact with abundant moisture and a boundary near the Ohio Valley. This will likely result in moderate to heavy rainfall across southeast Missouri, southern Illinois, southwest Indiana and west Kentucky. Widespread 2 to 4 inches of rain is likely. Some areas may see as much as 4 to 6 inches given there is a chance for thunderstorms as well. The rains are expected to end from west to east Thursday evening. The end result will be a risk for considerable flooding in low lying and poor drainage areas. We will likely see rising water levels on area rivers, creeks and small streams. Water levels are already elevated along the Ohio and Wabash rivers. Localized flash flooding cannot be ruled out with some thunderstorms producing heavier rainfall rates. Stay tuned for updates on forecast rainfall amounts. A Flood or Flash Flood Watch may need to be issued as we draw closer to the event.
