Flash flooding possible in some areas through Monday.

 

HERE IS THE LATEST SYNOPSIS... A nearly stationary frontal boundary across southeast Ohio, northeast Kentucky, and portions of West Virginia will lift north as a warm front late tonight into Monday morning. Periods of light to moderate rain are expected through Monday night. Soils across the area are nearly saturated due to previous rainfall, and additional rain could produce flooding issues mainly on small creeks, streams and low lying areas. Therefore, a flash flood watch continues in effect for northeast Kentucky, portions of southeast Ohio, and portions of West Virginia until overnight tonight. Weather will remain unsettled Monday night through Thursday with additional heavy rain possible Tuesday night and Wednesday.
