* After an overnight lull, with the rainfall mainly on the light
  to moderate side, rainfall intensity is expected to start
  increasing in the middle Ohio Valley Friday morning, and then
  across much of West Virginia, by about midday Friday. Rounds of
  showers and thunderstorms with very heavy rain are then expected
  through Friday evening. This rainfall, coupled with rain that
  has already fallen, could produce flash flooding, especially
  along small streams, creeks, low spots and poor drainage areas.


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.
