...Heavy rainfall likely Friday and Friday night...

A combination of two weather systems will likely bring widespread
rainfall to our region late this week. Tropical Storm Cindy is
forecast to move ashore on the Gulf coast, then move northeast
toward the Lower Ohio Valley Friday. At the same time, a cold
front will move southeast across the Lower Ohio Valley on Friday

As the cold front encounters tropical moisture from the remnants
of Cindy, heavy rainfall appears likely. The best chance of heavy
rain will be Friday and Friday night. It is still too early to
specify the location and amounts of heaviest rainfall. At this
time, rainfall amounts over two inches appear likely south of the
Ohio River. As the systems draw closer, a more specific range of
amounts will be determined.

The heavy rainfall is expected to cause rises on area creeks and
small rivers, particularly where flash flooding occurred over the
past weekend. Stay tuned for later updates and more specific
details concerning this heavy rain event.
