The National Weather Service has issued a Flash Flood Watch for Athens County until 8:00 PM, Thursday, 9/3/2020.
Multiple rounds of showers and thunderstorms will affect the region today with periods of heavy rain likely. Rainfall amounts of one to two inches are expected in the Flash Flood Watch area, with locally higher amounts where thunderstorms pass repeatedly over the same location. Due to the saturated ground in many areas, there is an increased potential that the heavy rainfall will lead to flash flooding of small creeks and streams and poor draining urban areas.
A Flash Flood Watch means that conditions may develop that lead to Flash Flooding. Flash Flooding is a very dangerous situation. You should monitor later forecasts and be prepared to take action should Flash Flood Warnings be issued.
