Watches & Warnings

Flash Flood Watch
Issued: 12:36 PM EDT Jun. 16, 2019 – National Weather Service

... Flash Flood Watch remains in effect through late Monday
night...

The Flash Flood Watch continues for

* portions of north central Ohio, northeast Ohio, and Northwest
Ohio, including the following areas, in north central Ohio,
Ashland, Crawford, Knox, Marion, Morrow, and Richland. In
northeast Ohio, Holmes, Mahoning, Medina, Portage, Stark,
Summit, Trumbull, and Wayne. In Northwest Ohio, Hancock and
Wyandot.

* Through late Monday night

* multiple rounds of rain remain possible through late Monday
night. Rainfall amounts of 1.5 to 3 inches have occured near
and south of a line from Marion to Mansfield to Warren.
Additional rainfall will be lighter today with half an inch to
1.5 inches possible. However these lighter amounts will
quickly run off where the heavier rains occured overnight,
leading to flooding.

* The risk for flash flooding will increase after each round of
rainfall, particularly in poor drainage areas near creeks,
streams and ditches. Street flooding is likely. Rapid runoff
will cause area rivers and streams to rise and possibly result
in flooding.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

A Flash Flood Watch is issued when there is a potential for flash
flooding. Flash flooding is a very dangerous situation. Monitor
the forecast and be prepared to take action should flash flood
warnings be issued or if flooding develops.
