* Through late tonight

* in general, 1 and a half to 3 and a half inches of rain is

cold front dropping in from the northwest.

* Timing will have the heaviest band of rain, associated with the
remnants of Cindy riding up along an east southeastward moving
cold front, over southeast Ohio and northwest West Virginia
early this afternoon and then shifting southeastward across the
entire area later this afternoon and tonight.

* The heavy rain could easily overwhelm creeks and streams, and
cause rises on the main Stem rivers. Also, urban flooding is
possible, as well as in poor drainage or other low lying areas.
Debris flows are also a risk in prolonged rainfall. Road
closures will be possible.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

A Flash Flood Watch means that conditions may develop that lead
to flash flooding. Flash flooding is a very dangerous situation.

You should monitor later forecasts and be prepared to take action
should flash flood warnings be issued.
