Advisory

Flash Flood Watch until 08:00AM Sunday

The National Weather Service in Wilmington has issued a

* Flash Flood Watch for portions of Indiana and Ohio, including the following areas, in Indiana, Dearborn, Fayette IN, Franklin IN, Ripley, Union IN, and Wayne. In Ohio, Auglaize, Butler, Champaign, Clark, Clinton, Darke, Delaware, Fairfield, Fayette OH, Franklin OH, Greene, Hamilton, Hardin, Hocking, Licking, Logan, Madison, Mercer, Miami, Montgomery, Pickaway, Preble, Shelby, Union OH, and Warren.

* From 2 PM EDT this afternoon through Sunday morning

* Multiple rounds of showers and thunderstorms are expected this afternoon through tonight, with repeated instances of heavy rain possible through parts of the watch area. Rainfall amounts of 2 to 4 inches may be possible in the most persistent thunderstorm activity, some of which could fall over a short period of time. Isolated higher amounts will be possible.

* The risk for flash flooding will increase after each round of rainfall, particularly in poor drainage areas near creeks, streams and ditches. Street flooding and rapid runoff will cause area rivers and streams to rise, resulting in the potential for some river flooding as well.

SHELBY ... FRANKLIN ... CLINTON ... MIAMI ... HAMILTON ... PREBLE ... DELAWARE ... CHAMPAIGN ... RIPLEY ... GREENE ... HOCKING ... DARKE ... BUTLER ... PICKAWAY ... UNION ... FAIRFIELD

People in the watch area should keep an eye on the weather and be prepared for immediate action should heavy rains and flooding occur or a Flash Flood Warning be issued. Avoid low-lying areas, and be careful when approaching highway dips and underpasses.
