FLOOD WATCH NOW IN EFFECT FROM THIS AFTERNOON THROUGH MONDAY MORNING… The Flood Watch is now in effect for * All of northern Indiana, northwest Ohio and far southwest Lower Michigan * From this afternoon through Monday morning * A vigorous upper level system will bring the likelihood of heavy rains as moisture streams north of the Ohio River and then become stationary. Storm total rainfall amounts of 1 to 3 inches with locally higher amounts are expected into Monday. * With soils across most of the area saturated and rivers swelling in response to the heavy rain that fell last week, areal and river flooding is possible. People living in flood prone locations, such as near creeks, low spots, and poor drainage areas may be impacted.

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. &&
