heavy rain which will cause flooding were moving into the warned
area. Since Thursday, radar estimates of one and half to three and
a half inches of rain fallen across the area.
Additional rainfall amounts of one to two inches is expected to fall
between 1 pm until midnight this Saturday. This will only cause
already swollen creeks and streams to rise 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.
