    The National Weather Service said a flood watch remains in effect through Sunday morning for multiple counties in West Virginia, Kentucky and Ohio.

    Counties in West Virginia under the watch are Kanawha, Putnam, Cabell, Wayne, Lincoln, Mason, Mingo, Logan, Boone, Clay, McDowell, Wyoming, northwest and southeast Raleigh, northwest and southeast Fayette and northwest and southeast Nicholas.

    In Kentucky, counties under the watch are Greenup, Carter, Boyd and Lawrence. Ohio counties under the watch include Gallia and Lawrence.

    The weather service said a storm system is expected to bring 1.5 to 2.5 inches of rain to the region through the weekend.

    With the ground is already saturated, most of the rain will flow into streams and creeks and eventually into the rivers, making flooding a good possibility.
