Flash Flood Watch

Flood Watch...UPDATED
National Weather Service Jackson KY
930 PM EST Thu Feb 21 2019

...More Heavy Rain Inbound for the Start of the Weekend...

.A strong area of low pressure will bring multiple rounds of
moderate to heavy rainfall to eastern Kentucky Friday night
through Saturday night. The initial rounds of heavy rain will be
associated with a warm front as it slowly moves from south to
north across the area Friday night and Saturday. Another round of
rain will hit the area Saturday night, when a cold front crosses
eastern Kentucky. This rain will be falling on already saturated
ground, so the threat for flooding will be heightened along with
the threat for rock and mudslides. There is also a good chance
for thunderstorms Saturday night. These storms will be capable of
producing locally heavy rainfall adding to flash flooding
concerns.

...FLASH FLOOD WATCH REMAINS IN EFFECT FROM FRIDAY EVENING
THROUGH SUNDAY MORNING...

The Flash Flood Watch continues for

* Portions of east central Kentucky, northeast Kentucky, south
  central Kentucky, and southeast Kentucky, including the
  following areas, in east central Kentucky, Bath, Elliott,
  Estill, Fleming, Menifee, Montgomery, Powell, and Rowan. In
  northeast Kentucky, Johnson and Martin. In south central
  Kentucky, Laurel, McCreary, Pulaski, Rockcastle, Wayne, and
  Whitley. In southeast Kentucky, Bell, Breathitt, Clay, Floyd,
  Harlan, Jackson, Knott, Knox, Lee, Leslie, Letcher, Magoffin,
  Morgan, Owsley, Perry, Pike, and Wolfe.

* From Friday evening through Sunday morning

* Moderate to heavy rainfall Friday night and Saturday, along
  with thunderstorms Saturday night, moving over already
  saturated ground, could lead to localized flooding or flash
  flooding.

* With rivers, creeks, and streams already running high, and the
  ground already saturated from recent heavy rains, the
  anticipated rainfall Friday night through Saturday night will
  lead to an enhanced risk of flooding or flash flooding across
  eastern Kentucky. Rock and mudslides will also be a hazard with
  any heavy rain.

PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS...

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.
