Miami Valley , Whitewater Valley, and the I-71 corridor of Ohio/Indiana:
Flash Flood Watch in effect until midnight tonight.....
Hazardous Outlook: Heavy rainfall and a slight risk for severe storms exist through tonight. A strong cold front combined with moisture from Tropical Storm Karen out of the Gulf will give the area a chance to receive two to three inches of rainfall. Places where thunderstorms train may see locally higher amounts. Dependent on how much instability forms there may be a few storms capable of isolated tornadoes and damaging winds this evening. Stay tuned for further details.
