A flash-flood watch was in effect for a swath of Eastern Kentucky on Sunday. Forecasters said an inch or two of rain could fall on already-saturated ground.
"The potential is there, especially if we get some thunderstorms," said Jon Pelton, a meteorologist for the National Weather Service office in Jackson. The rain was expected to develop about 8 p.m. and could continue through noon Monday.
The heaviest rainfall could be in an area that includes Monticello, London, Hazard, Pikeville and Middlesboro, Pelton said.
