Issued by The National Weather Service In Louisville, KY Sat, Mar 7, 8:56 am CST
The Flood Warning continues for the Green River at Brownsville until Sunday Morning, March 8th. At 8:45am this morning (Saturday) the stage was 22.8ft. Flood stage is 18ft. Minor flooding is occurring and minor flooding is being forecast.
Green River will continue to fall to below flood stage by tonight, impact at 21ft. Mammoth Cave/Green River Ferries remain closed. This crest compares to a previous crest of 23ft on February 18th, 2003.
Above: As most are happy to see the snow begin to melt, all the water eventually makes it's way into the river, which in addition to the previous rain, has caused flooding.
Temperatures are expected to be in the upper 40's with sunny skies today with a low around 30. Even warmer weather is in the forecast tomorrow with highs in the mid 50's.
The melting snow should make for good snowman material over the next couple of days, so let's see those snowman pics! Send to: firstname.lastname@example.org.
