Flash Flood Watch
Issued: 2:23 PM CDT Sep. 23, 2018 – National Weather Service

... Flash Flood Watch in effect from 11 PM EDT /10 PM CDT/ this
evening through Wednesday afternoon...

The National Weather Service in Louisville has issued a

* Flash Flood Watch for portions of southern Indiana and central
Kentucky

* from 11 PM EDT /10 PM CDT/ this evening through Wednesday
afternoon

* a slow-moving frontal boundary will remain close enough to the
region until a cold front pushes it through on Wednesday. Plenty
of moisture in the vicinity of this front will mean any shower
or storm will have the potential to produce heavy rain.

* Storm total rainfall through Wednesday likely will range from 2
to 4 inches for most locations in the watch area. Locally
higher amounts are possible, especially in areas that receive
several rounds of stronger storms.

* This much rain falling on saturated grounds likely will cause
standing water on area roadways as well as quick rises on creeks
and small streams.

* There will be dry times within this extended watch period. At
this point, the best chance for widespread heavy rain looks to
be late tonight and into the Monday morning rush hour,
especially along and west of I-65, then again Tuesday afternoon
and night as storms associated with the cold front move
through.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

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.
