A Flood Watch has been issued for all of southwestern Kentucky and middle Tennessee through 7 p.m. Thursday, with at least two rounds of heavy rain to possibly cause issues.
The National Weather Service in Paducah expects two-to-three inches of rain across the watch area, which includes Christian, Todd, Trigg and surrounding counties. The heaviest rain is expected during the first half of today and tonight into tomorrow.
The additional rain on saturated ground will increase the risk for flooding of creeks, streams, low-lying areas and poor drainage areas. Forecasters expect some flooding of roadways in the usual places.
Local residents are urged to monitor the latest forecasts and anyone encountering standing water on a road should turn around, don’t drown.
