* From this evening through Wednesday afternoon

* Abundant moisture combined with an upper level storm system will
  lead to widespread showers and thunderstorms later today but
  particularly overnight into early Tuesday and again late Tuesday
  into early Wednesday. Heavy rain will be possible at times over
  the watch area including higher rainfall rates of 1 to 2 inches
  per hour. Portions of the watch area received 1 to 3 inches of
  rainfall on Saturday into early Sunday making soils less
  permeable to additional rainfall. Additional Rainfall amounts of
  2 to 4 inches are possible in the watch area through Noon
  Wednesday.

* Flooding in low lying and flood prone areas will be likely,
  especially in urban areas. In addition, creeks, streams and
  rivers may overflow their banks.

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.
