Discussion...best to keep the Flood Watch in place tonight with
the atmospheric system driving the production of scattered showers
still in place across the appalachian region. Fresh...deep moisture
will continue to be lifted within the cyclonic circulation of the
low pressure system situated over eastern Kentucky. Kept probability of precipitation
rather high across eastern sections of the viewing area while
allowing for tapering probabilities for western sections as some
drier air finally starts to build in behind the wet Holiday system.
