Heavy rain started late Sunday afternoon and has continued all night long across the Mountain State.

Flood Warnings are in effect for all of North-Central West Virginia until 1:15 PM Monday.

A Flood Warning means that flooding is either occurring or imminent.

Some areas of West Virginia have already received over 2.00" of rain, as rain continues throughout Monday.

Overnight and into Monday morning, dozens of roadways have been reported as flooded and some have closed.

Additional rainfall will only worsen the flooding problem, but most of the heavy rain is now out of the area.

Rain showers will dry out later Monday afternoon, but cold air and moisture will settle in, possible causing snowfall Monday night in parts of West Virginia.

The National Weather Service says a Freeze Warning is in effect from 10 P.M. Monday to 10 A.M. Tuesday for the following Mid-Ohio Valley counties:

Athens, Calhoun, Doddridge, Gallia, Jackson, Mason, Meigs, Morgan, Pleasants, Ritchie, Roane, Tyler, Washington, Wirt, Wood.
