Flash Flood Watch
Issued: 3:45 AM CST Feb. 23, 2019 – National Weather Service

... Flash Flood Watch remains in effect through this evening...

The Flash Flood Watch continues for

* portions of southern Illinois, western Kentucky, and southeast
Missouri, including the following areas, in southern Illinois,
Hardin, Massac, and Pope. In western Kentucky, Ballard,
Caldwell, Calloway, Carlisle, Christian, Crittenden, Daviess,
Fulton, Graves, Henderson, Hickman, Hopkins, Livingston, Lyon,
Marshall, McCracken, McLean, Muhlenberg, Todd, Trigg, Union
KY, and Webster. In southeast Missouri, Mississippi and New
Madrid.

* Through this evening

* three quarters of an inch to nearly two inches of rain will be
possible in the watch area today and tonight. The highest totals
should be along the Kentucky and Tennessee borders, with
gradually lower amounts toward the Ohio River and the Missouri
bootheel.

* Ground conditions remain saturated from earlier flooding
rainfall. Any additional rainfall will only cause more flooding
or flash flooding, as any water will runoff immediately. In
areas already inundated by backwater from area rivers and
creeks, sharp rises in water levels can be expected in a short
period of time.

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.
