Flood watch continues / flood warning for the Ohio River…
*The worst flooding since 1997 is occurring along the Ohio River, and water levels continue to rise. Follow this link for more information – whas11.com/OhioRiver.
Over the past 3-4 days rainfall amounts in many parts of the viewing area have exceeded 5 inches. The ground is saturated thus the potential for flash flooding is very high tonight.
A final wave of wet weather tonight may involve a few strong to severe storms. Rain this could be heavy at times. With the ground saturated it doesn't take severe winds to cause trees to uproot. Flash flooding is possible through tonight with an additional 1-4” of rain possible.
By daybreak tomorrow a cold front will be to our east and dry weather returns through Tuesday. The next system brings rain Wednesday and Thursday. After many days above average, by Friday highs will be in the upper 40s, close to average for the early days of March.
