...Flash Flood Watch Issued Through This Evening...
...Additional Heavy Rainfall & Strong To Severe Thunderstorms This Evening...

Widespread heavy rain is possible today, with strong storms this evening as a strong storm system affects the Ohio Valley.

Periodic chances for light rain will return for the latter half of the upcoming week.

Area rivers will remain high from recent rainfall. See our webpage for the most recent updates to river flood advisories and flood warnings.

Heavy rain is likely today, with 1 to 2 inches of additional rainfall possible. Areal and renewed small stream flooding is likely where the heaviest rain falls, with localized flash flooding possible. Livestock producers should move animals to higher ground. Pet owners should also ensure pets are safe and moved from flood-prone and low-lying areas to higher ground.

Strong to severe thunderstorms are possible this evening as a strong cold front moves through the area. The strongest cells will be capable of producing locally damaging wind gusts and brief spin-up tornadoes, mainly along and west of I-65. Briefly torrential rainfall could result in additional flooding.
