A Flood Watch remains in effect for all of western Kentucky from 7 p.m. Wednesday until 7 p.m. Thursday.
The National Weather Service in Paducah says three-to-four inches of rain is possible during that time period and flooding could happen—especially in low-lying and poor draining areas.
A cold front will move across the region and will bring several rounds of rainfall.
Forecasters say falling leaves may also clog drainage systems and impede the normal course of water runoff. In addition, some minor river flooding may eventually develop given the widespread and heavy amounts of rain.
Motorists encountering standing water this week are reminded to turn around, don’t drown.
