Wet weekend ahead with Flash Flood Watch in effect for central Indiana

Remnants of 'Gordon' set to surge into the tri-state

Remnants of 'Gordon' set to surge into the tri-state

Accumulated rain from what is now Tropical Depression Gordon, makes for a big splash across a frontage road along Interstate 55 in Jackson, Miss., Wednesday.

An additional 1 to 3 inches of rainfall is possible through Sunday night.

FLOOD WATCHES are in effect for all of OH through Monday morning. That storm, Tropical Storm Ike, produced four to six inches of rain over two-thirds of IL, which led to flash flooding.

A flash flood watch means there are conditions that could lead to flash flooding, especially in low-lying areas.




Heavy downpours could trigger flash flooding, so a Flash Flood Watch is in effect through Sunday afternoon for most of south-central Texas.

"Rain is forecast to begin over extreme southwestern Ontario Sunday, reaching the Golden Horseshoe Sunday evening", read an Environment Canada statement sent out Saturday.

In addition to widespread heavier rainfall locally, excessive rain to our north has resulted in higher river levels.

Rainfall rates should stay manageable in most spots, but travelers should plan ahead for some delays at the start of the week. With the clouds and wet weather, high temperatures will bak off into the 70s for Friday into the weekend. Cooling is expected throughout the day, to the lower 60s by evening.
