* 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

* From 2 AM EDT Friday through late Friday night

* 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 Storm Cindy combine with a cold
  front dropping in from the northwest.

* The heavy rain in the forecast will fall over a large area,
  which 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.
