Flood watch from Saturday afternoon to Sunday morning

The National Weather Service in Northern Indiana issued a flood watch today for most of The Journal Gazette's coverage areas in Indiana and Ohio.

There is the potential for 1 to 3 inches of rain, but the weather service said the exact track of the heaviest rainfall is still uncertain.
