Flood watch in effect this weekend in southern Kentucky
NASHVILLE, TN (WSMV) -
The National Weather Service has issued a flash flood watch for several counties in southern Kentucky, as heavy rain is expected over an extended period this weekend.
The watch is in effect from 6 p.m. Friday until 6 a.m. Sunday for Calloway, Todd, Christian and Trigg counties.
Rainfall amounts of 3 inches to 5 inches are possible in these areas, with the heaviest rainfall expected from late Friday night through about 12 a.m. Saturday, NWS forecasters said.
A flash flood watch is in effect from late Friday through Saturday evening for Henry County. The NWS says a flash flood watch means that conditions may develop that lead to flash flooding. Roads may become impassable and treacherous for drivers.
Ground conditions remain saturated from recent snow melt, so heavy rainfall could result in creeks and small streams coming out of their banks.
