The National Weather Service in Paducah has issued a

* Flash Flood Watch for all of southwest Indiana, and adjacent
  northern portions of southern Illinois. The watch is for those
  areas along and north of a line from Du Quoin, Illinois, to
  Rockport, Indiana.

* From 7 AM CDT this morning through Tuesday morning

* Showers and thunderstorms will produce locally heavy rainfall
  over areas that already received heavy rain on Sunday.

* Radar estimates and spotter reports indicate that many locations
  in the watch area received 3 inches of rainfall or more on
  Sunday. Localized flash flooding from forecast heavy rains is
  possible anywhere in the Watch area, but especially these
  locations that received so much rain on Sunday will be prone to
  flash flooding with any additional heavy rains.


A Flash Flood Watch means that conditions may develop that lead
to flash flooding. Flash flooding is a very dangerous situation.

Be especially cautious at night, when rising flood waters may be
harder to detect. And remember...never drive across a flooded
roadway. Turn around, don`t drown!

You should monitor later forecasts and be prepared to take action
should Flash Flood Warnings be issued.
