...FLASH FLOOD WATCH IN EFFECT THROUGH WEDNESDAY MORNING...
The National Weather Service in Paducah has issued a Flash Flood Watch for portions of southeast Missouri, southern Illinois, southwest Indiana and western Kentucky.
Through Wednesday morning.
1 to 3 inches of rainfall is likely with locally higher amounts possible.
Heavy rainfall will result in flooding of low lying or poor drainage areas, and ultimately dangerous flash flooding on smaller creeks, streams and low water crossings. Significant rises on larger streams and rivers will also be possible.
A Flash Flood Watch means that conditions may develop that lead to flash flooding. Flash flooding is a very dangerous situation.
You should monitor later forecasts and be prepared to take action should Flash Flood Warnings be issued.
