...Locally Heavy Rains Possible Wednesday Afternoon and Night...
Localized Flooding or Flash Flooding Possible...
Another round of locally heavy rain is possible across the area
Wednesday afternoon and night. Widespread rain amounts of 1 to 1.5
inches are looking likely, with localized amounts of up to 3
inches possible. Because soils across the area are wet and rivers
are already running high from recent rains, the risk of excessive
runoff and additional rises on area rivers is higher than normal.
Where the locally heavy rain may fall and where any river
flooding or flash flooding threats would occur remains uncertain.
If you live near a river or stream, monitor the rainfall forecast
and water levels closely. If rivers and streams near you start
rising out of their banks be ready to move to higher ground.
