Flood watch in effect this evening through Monday

A flood watch is in effect from Saturday evening through Monday morning.

The National Weather Service says there is a potential for 2 to 4 inches of rainfall.

“With vegetation still dormant, plus snowmelt in the far interior, it is sufficient to bring the concern of minor flooding on area rivers and streams,” a press advisory states. “Poor drainage and urban flooding is also a concern.”

A flood watch means there is a potential for flooding based on current forecasts.
