Tri-State Faces Drenching


One week after frigid temperatures and ice, the Tri-State is dealing with heavy rain and thunderstorms. 

The National Weather Service has issued a Flood Watch in effect through Thursday evening.

Forecasters are predicting 2-to-4 inches of rain in the Tri-Sate, with locally heavier amounts possible.

Strong-to-severe thunderstorms are also possible.

The weather service says heavy rain will likely lead to flooding in low lying and poor drainage areas, in addition to rising water levels on area rivers, creeks, and streams.

Levels are already elevated along the Ohio and Wabash rivers.

People living in areas prone to flooding should prepare to take action should flooding develop.

Localized flash flooding is also possible with scattered thunderstorms producing heavy rain.

Forecasters say the rain and above-normal temperatures will be replaced by drier, much colder air Thursday night.

They say the temperature may stay below freezing on Friday with gusty winds.
