Flooding of low-lying areas will be possible. In addition, some creeks may exceed their banks resulting in potential road closures, especially in southeast Ohio.

You should monitor later forecasts and be alert for possible Flood Warnings. Those living in areas prone to flooding should be prepared to take action should flooding develop.
