...Heavy rainfall possible this weekend into early next week...

Several rounds of showers and thunderstorms are expected to move
across the area through early next week. The potential for heavy
rain is highest starting Saturday...when tropical moisture will
move into the area. The heaviest rainfall will mainly occur in
the Saturday through Monday time frame.

A large part of the area will likely see 3 to 5 inches of rain
during this period. Local amounts of over 6 inches are possible.
Right now..the heaviest rain should fall along and north of the
Ohio River.

The ground is still fairly wet from recent rains, and a few
storms are possible between now and the weekend. Additional heavy
rain will likely cause flooding...especially in low lying areas.

Confidence is high that heavy rain will fall, but confidence is
lower as to the exact location of the heaviest rainfall. Stay
tuned for later updates or watches concerning this heavy rain
