Several inches of rain are expected to fall across the entire Tri-State over the remainder of the week which will likely cause flooding in the lower lying portions of the area and beyond, leading the National Weather Service to put us all under a Flood Watch until Sunday morning at 6:00 a.m. Central Time, 7:00 a.m. Eastern.

The Watch applies to the following locations:

At Owensboro affecting Spencer and Daviess Counties

At the Newburgh Dam affecting Spencer...Vanderburgh...
Warrick...Daviess and Henderson Counties

At Evansville affecting Posey...Vanderburgh...
