AN UNUSUALLY WET EARLY AUTUMN FRONTAL SYSTEM WILL BRING MODERATE TO

TOTAL RAINFALL AMOUNTS OF 1 TO 3 INCHES ARE EXPECTED ACROSS MOST OF

NEEDED IN MANY AREAS, ESPECIALLY THIS AFTERNOON AND EVENING.
PONDING OF WATER WILL BE POSSIBLE...ESPECIALLY IN AREAS WHERE
DEBRIS HAS ACCUMULATED DURING THE DRY SEASON.
