...Heavy rainfall possible Saturday evening through Sunday with
the potential for flooding issues...

A surge of heavy rain will cross the Quad State from the southwest
beginning Saturday evening. With very high moisture values for
this time of year, this system will be able to sustain moderate to
heavy rainfall through the night. Isolated thunderstorms are also
possible. At this time, the area of heaviest rain Saturday night
appears to be near or just south of the Ohio River. This line will
shift southward through Western Kentucky on Sunday. Total
rainfall amounts along and south of the Ohio of up to 2 inches are
possible, with localized higher amounts. Rainfall amounts to the
north and west of the Ohio River are currently expected to be
closer to an inch.

flood prone areas with hours of sustained heavy rain. While
confidence in a heavy rain event is increasing, there remains
uncertainty in the exact location the heaviest rain axis will set
up Saturday night, so further adjustments to the forecast are
