The Flash Flood Watch continues for

* Portions of northeast Kentucky, southeast Ohio, southwest
  Virginia, and West Virginia, including the following areas, in
  northeast Kentucky, Boyd, Carter, Greenup, and Lawrence KY. In
  southeast Ohio, Athens, Gallia, Jackson OH, Lawrence OH,

* Through late tonight

* In general, 1 and a half to 3 and a half inches of rain is
  possible across the watch area, with locally heavier amounts,
  as the remnants of Tropical Depression Cindy combine with a
  cold front dropping in from the northwest.

* Timing will have the heaviest band of rain, associated with the
  remnants of Cindy riding up along an east southeastward moving
  cold front, over southeast Ohio and northwest West Virginia
  early this afternoon and then shifting southeastward across the
  entire area later this afternoon and tonight.

* The heavy rain could easily overwhelm creeks and streams, and
  cause rises on the main stem rivers. Also, urban flooding is
  possible, as well as in poor drainage or other low lying areas.
  Debris flows are also a risk in prolonged rainfall. Road
  closures will 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.
