The National weather service has issued a flood advisory for Boyle, Casey, Garrard and Lincoln counties. Two to three inches of rainfall is anticipated.
Boyle County Sheriff Marty Elliot encourages drivers to take caution when driving, stressing that there is high water throughout the area.
"Everybody needs to be aware that it only takes about four inches of moving water to push a car off the roadway," Elliot said. He said that, while the county officials had not responded to any weather-related issues, they were taking steps to be prepared, in case something occurred.
The advisory is expected to expire at about 4:30 p.m. today.
