Heavy rain remains in the forecast for the region and a Flood Watch is in effect from 7 p.m. Wednesday until 7 p.m. Thursday for all of western Kentucky and northern middle Tennessee.
The National Weather Service in Paducah expects most of Christian and Todd counties to receive two to three inches of rain by the time the cold front is done with the region, while northwestern Christian and most of Trigg County is forecasted in the three to four inch range.
Amounts of four to six inches are possible the farther north and west you go—especially near the Ohio River in western Kentucky.
Flooding will be most likely in low-lying and poor drainage areas.
Never attempt to drive through standing water, as over half of flood-related deaths occur when a vehicle is driven into a flooded road.
