THE NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE IN PADUCAH HAS ISSUED A  
 
* FLOOD WATCH FOR ALL OF WESTERN KENTUCKY, ADJACENT PORTIONS OF  
FAR SOUTHEAST ILLINOIS, EXTREME SOUTHEAST MISSOURI, AND  
SOUTHERN-MOST PARTS OF SOUTHWEST INDIANA.  
 
* FROM SATURDAY EVENING THROUGH SUNDAY EVENING  
 
* A CONSISTENT SIGNAL FOR LOCALLY HEAVY RAIN IS FORECAST,  
ESPECIALLY SATURDAY NIGHT INTO SUNDAY MORNING. STORM TOTAL  
AVERAGE RAINFALL SHOULD TOP 2 INCHES IN THE WATCH AREA, AND WITH  
THUNDERSTORMS FORECAST, LOCALIZED HIGHER TOTALS TO 3 INCHES OR  
MORE ARE POSSIBLE. THIS AMOUNT OF CUMULATIVE RAINFALL WILL BE  
FALLING ON RECENTLY SOAKED GROUNDS FROM MELTED SNOWFALL, SO THE  
ABILITY TO SOAK IN ALL THIS EXPECTED RAINFALL WILL BE  
COMPROMISED AND LIKELY TO CAUSE FLOOD ISSUES.  
 
* LOW LANDS, STREETS, SMALL CREEKS AND STREAMS, WILL RESPOND  
FASTEST WITH STANDING WATER AND FLOODING. HEAVIER, MORE  
SUSTAINED OR REPEAT RAINFALL WILL PROMOTE BROADER, MORE  
EXTENSIVE FLOODING.  
 
PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS...  
 
A FLOOD WATCH MEANS THERE IS A POTENTIAL FOR FLOODING BASED ON  
CURRENT FORECASTS.  
 
YOU SHOULD MONITOR LATER FORECASTS AND BE ALERT FOR POSSIBLE  
FLOOD WARNINGS. THOSE LIVING IN AREAS PRONE TO FLOODING SHOULD BE  
PREPARED TO TAKE ACTION SHOULD FLOODING DEVELOP.
