* Rainfall intensity is expected to start increasing in the middle
Ohio Valley and across much of West Virginia today. Rounds of
showers and thunderstorms with very heavy rain are then expected
through this evening. This rainfall, coupled with rain that has
already fallen, could produce flash flooding, especially along
small streams, creeks, low spots and poor drainage areas.
A Flash Flood Watch means that conditions may develop that lead
to flash flooding. Flash flooding is a very dangerous situation.
You should monitor later forecasts and be prepared to take action
should Flash Flood Warnings be issued.
