be expected this afternoon, with locally higher amounts. Due to
recent rainfall, the ground will not be able to absorb this
rainfall.

* Rapid rises of creeks and streams will be likely due to
repeated rounds of torrential rainfall. Low lying areas will
be particularly susceptible. Runoff from the heavy rainfall
likely will accumulate on roads making them impassible. Flash
flooding may develop quickly. Be prepared to act if
floodwaters threaten.

PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS…

A Flash Flood Watch means that conditions may develop that lead
to flash flooding. Flash flooding is a very dangerous situation.

You should monitor later forecasts and be prepared to take action
should Flash Flood Warnings be issued.
