Flooding Threat from the Ohio Valley to the Plains

7 Sep 2018, 10:03 am

Another day of heavy rain fell through portions of the Ohio Valley into the Plains and more is ahead for today (Friday). Some areas saw more than 4″ of rainfall, creating some flooding.

Through this weekend, Flash Flood Watches remain in effect from northern Virginia through the Ohio Valley and into the southern Plains. More than 6″ of rain may fall in some areas by Monday.

A slow moving cold front coupled with Tropical Depression Gordon are the culprits for bringing the flooding threat. High humidity and strong Jet Stream energy will fuel showers and thunderstorms with the potential for heavy rain.
