* At 1246 PM CST, Doppler radar indicated thunderstorms producing
  heavy rain which will cause flooding were moving into the warned
  area. Since Thursday, radar estimates of one to three and a half
  inches of rain fallen across the warned area.

Additional rainfall amounts of one to two inches is expected to fall
between 1 pm CST Saturday until 1 am CST Sunday. This will only
cause already swollen creeks and streams to rise further and keep
low-lying roadways flooded. Anyone planning travel overnight should
be extra cautious and avoid flooded areas, when it is more difficult
to see the dangers.

Should intense, but short duration rainfall occur at any one
location that may cause a hazard to life and property, a flash flood
warning could be issued for that area as well.

This flood warning may be cancelled earlier on Sunday, should water
recede faster than expected from flooded areas. Please report any
flooding to law enforcement, so that they can relay it to the
National Weather Service in Paducah.

deaths occur in vehicles.

Please report flooding to your local law enforcement agency when you
can do so safely.
