afternoon. Additional rainfall amounts up to 3 inches remain
possible through this afternoon.
* Heavy rainfall rates may lead to flash flooding along small

A Flash Flood Watch means that conditions may develop that lead
to flash flooding. Flash flooding is a VERY DANGEROUS SITUATION.
Do not attempt to drive on flooded roads. It takes little water
to move a vehicle off the road and into deeper water. Also, the
road bed may not be intact below flood waters.
