Flood Watch in effect for the region
(2008-03-27)
(WOUB) - A Flood Watch in effect through Friday afternoon for our region.

Strong rises are also possible on some rivers...such as the Hocking and Muskingum.

Occasional showers will fall through Friday.

Rain totals from last night through Friday of 1 to 2 inches are possible.

With the lack of spring vegetation and soils wetter than normal, it would likely take about 1.5 inches of rain to initiate small stream flooding.

However, flash flooding or a sudden rise is not expected.

Breaks in the rain are expected, which may help lessen this flood threat.
