Flash flood watch issued for Boone County through Wednesday morning

Monday, February 9, 2009 | 7:10 p.m. CST

COLUMBIA — The National Weather Service has issued a flash flood watch for Boone County. The watch will be in effect late Tuesday night through Wednesday morning.

Heavy rain caused by showers and thunderstorms will develop late Tuesday night and continue through Wednesday morning, according to the Weather Service’s Web site.  Flash flooding will be a very real possibility because of ground conditions that are either saturated or still frozen.

A flash flood watch does not mean flash flooding is imminent but does mean flooding is possible. Columbia and Boone County residents, especially those living in flood-prone areas, should be prepared for the possibility of heavy rain and flash flooding.
