The National Weather Service in Paducah has extended the

* Flood Warning for...
east central Warrick County in southwestern Indiana...
Spencer County in southwestern Indiana...
southeastern Henderson County in northwestern Kentucky...
east central Caldwell County in western Kentucky...
northeastern Trigg County in western Kentucky...
Hopkins County in northwestern Kentucky...
Daviess County in northwestern Kentucky...

Christian County in south central Kentucky...
McLean County in northwestern Kentucky...
Todd County in south central Kentucky...

* until 300 PM CST Sunday

* at 1246 PM CST, Doppler radar indicated thunderstorms producing
heavy rain which will cause flooding were moving into the warned
area. Since Thursday, radar estimates of one to three and a half
inches of rain fallen across the warned area.

Additional rainfall amounts of one to two inches is expected to fall
between 1 PM CST Saturday until 1 am CST Sunday. This will only
cause already swollen creeks and streams to rise further and keep
low-lying roadways flooded. Anyone planning travel overnight should
be extra cautious and avoid flooded areas, when it is more difficult
to see the dangers.

Should intense, but short duration rainfall occur at any one
location that may cause a hazard to life and property, a Flash Flood
Warning could be issued for that area as well.

This Flood Warning may be cancelled earlier on Sunday, should water
recede faster than expected from flooded areas. Please report any
flooding to law enforcement, so that they can relay it to the
National Weather Service in Paducah.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

Turn around, don't drown when encountering flooded roads. Most flood
deaths occur in vehicles.

Please report flooding to your local law enforcement agency when you
can do so safely.

A Flood Warning means that flooding is imminent or occurring. All
interested parties should take necessary precautions immediately.

Areal Flood Watch
Issued: 1:46 PM CST Feb. 24, 2018 – National Weather Service

... Flood Watch remains in effect through late tonight...

The Flood Watch continues for

* all of southeast Missouri, southern Illinois, southwest Indiana
and western Kentucky.

* Through late tonight

* showers will be increasing in scope and coverage as we head into
the night time hours. Thunderstorms will bring the potential for
intense heavy rains locally. Another 1 to 2 inches on average is
expected, but locally higher amounts are possible. This will be
falling on already well saturated grounds, many of which are
already in or nearly flooded. These additional rains will
continue to pose a flood hazard, including the potential for
flash flooding where thunderstorms hit.

* These additional rains will aggravate already ongoing flooding
of area rivers and tributaries across the region. Smaller
streams and creeks not currently in flood will fill up and
overspill their banks quickly, heightening the flood threat. In
addition, elevated water levels in low lying and poor drainage
areas, as well as waters that may not yet have receded from
antecedent rainfall, may lead to more Road closures due to high
water crossings. Thunderstorms, producing locally higher
rainfall amounts, could pose a flash flooding risk as well.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

A Flood Watch means there is a potential for flooding based on
current forecasts.

You should monitor later forecasts and be alert for possible
flood warnings. Those living in areas prone to flooding should be
prepared to take action should flooding develop.

Heed all Flood Warning signs, and never cross a flooded roadway.
Turn around and don't drown! Remember it is harder to see rising
waters at night. Seek High Ground immediately if you encounter an
area with rising waters.
