Flash Flood Watch in Effect Through Monday Morning With Heavy Rains Expected

July 2, 2016

The National Weather Service has issued a flash flood warning for Marion, Clinton, Fayette, Washington, and Bond Counties through seven Monday morning.  

The weather service says a stalled frontal boundary will act as the focus for several rounds of showers and thunderstorms from Saturday afternoon through Sunday night.  The heaviest rain is now expected north of Interstate 70, with three to four inches of rain expected across Bond, Fayette, Effingham and Clay Counties as well as the northern parts of Clinton and Marion Counties.  The rest of Clinton and Marion Counties as well as Washington and Jefferson County are now expected to get two to three inches of rain.  

Heavy rainfall will result in flooding of loy lying or poor drainage areas and ultimately dangerous flash flooding on smaller creeks and streams.  Significant rises on larger streams and rivers will also be possible.
