(Lawrenceburg, Ind.) - The tri-state will get plenty of rain over the next few days, thanks to what's left of Tropical Storm Gordon.

Saturday night will stay dry in Western New York with cloudy skies, but rain expected to move over N. PA. In advance of the upcoming multi day rainfall threat, the National Weather Service has issued a Flash Flood Watch for most of central IN from Saturday through Sunday night.

A Flash Flood Watch remains in effect through Saturday morning for part of North Texas.

Prior to the game, national team-mate Toni Kroos had criticised the winger for his apathetic body language. He will now miss Sunday's friendly against Peru .

Rain, heavy at times, will continue into Monday, according to the weather service.

Rain chances will be best before 1 p.m. Sunday, then chances decrease through the late afternoon. Flooding along rivers, creeks and streams will be a certainty as early as Saturday but even more risky is the rapid rise in water where heavy rainfall occurs, the could lead to a more life threatening FLASH FLOOD situation. If driving during heavy rains, watch out for rising water levels and do not drive into water, even if it appears shallow. Ponding on area roadways is possible everywhere, including during the Monday morning commute. The Niagara Frontier should see totals ranging from half an inch to a little over an inch.

Saturday's warmest temperatures, in the lower 70s, are forecast in the early morning hours. Expect it to feel like the 50s and 60s Sunday afternoon and still a cool below average day on Monday.
