FLOOD WATCH

NOW until 10:00 AM Tomorrow (12/15)

OH: Athens, Gallia, Jackson, Meigs, Morgan, Perry, Vinton, Washington

WV: Jackson, Mason, Pleasants, Ritchie, Tyler, Wirt, Wood

* Rain will continue through the early afternoon hours, with perhaps a lull thereafter. Rain overspreads the area again tonight. Combined with what has already fallen, rainfall amounts of 1.5 to 2 inches are expected by Sunday morning. Most of this will occur as runoff, which will bring area creeks to bankfull if not above tonight.

* Flooding of creeks, streams, low lying and poor drainage areas will be possible. Some road closures are also possible. Symmes Creek, Duck Creek, Raccoon Creek, Little Muskingum River, and the Shade River are particularly vulnerable.
