A Flood Watch remains in effect from Saturday afternoon through Sunday morning for Calhoun, Gilmer, Clay, Roane, Wirt, Ritchie, and Braxton, among other regional counties.

A strong low pressure system will affect the area this weekend ... with the potential of dropping another inch or two of rain. This will likely cause more flooding problems beginning Saturday afternoon with the greatest impact Saturday night and early Sunday.

The greatest threat will not only be small streams and creeks but all the rivers as well ... especially the Little Kanawha River, West Fork of the Little Kanawha.

A Flood Watch means there is a potential for flooding based on current forecasts.
