The National Weather Service has issued a Flash Flood Watch for Athens County from 7PM, Friday 6/18/2021 until 12PM, Saturday 6/19/2021.
Showers and thunderstorms are expected tonight. Due to high moisture content and repetitive nature over the same area, storms could produce 1 to 2 inches of rain in less than an hour. Even area wide average precipitation could total close to an inch, and locally higher totals of 3 to 4 inches are possible, especially where a storm persists, or multiple storms hit the same location. As a result, flash flooding will be possible, especially in areas with saturated soils from heavy rain in recent days.
PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS You should monitor later forecasts and be prepared to take action should Flash Flood Warnings be issued.
