Flood Watches in the Ohio Valley and Northwest

13 Jun 2017, 2:24 pm

Slow moving thunderstorms have been producing very heavy rainfall in portions of the Ohio Valley. A Flash Flood Watch continues in parts of Ohio, West Virginia, and Kentucky. Another 3″ of rain is possible through the night.

The National Weather Service advises that thunderstorms could produce flooding along rivers, creeks and streams. They suggest avoid low-lying areas, and be careful when approaching highway dips and underpasses.

Moisture has been riding up along a stalled front in the Ohio Valley. As a low pressure center moves in from the west, the front will start to lift northward. Showers and thunderstorms will diminish later tonight over the watch area.

More thunderstorms will be affecting the Pacific Northwest during the evening. Flood Watches continue in Montana and Idaho, but should expire later tonight. The highest elevations near Yellowstone National Park will likely see snow.
