...FLOOD WATCH NOW IN EFFECT FROM LATE SUNDAY NIGHT THROUGH
TUESDAY AFTERNOON...

The Flood Watch is now in effect for

* A portion of northwest California, including the following
  areas, Coastal Del Norte, Del Norte Interior, Mendocino Coast,
  Northeastern Mendocino Interior, Northern Humboldt Coast,
  Northern Humboldt Interior, Northwestern Mendocino Interior,
  Southeastern Mendocino Interior, Southern Humboldt Interior,
  Southern Trinity, Southwestern Humboldt, and Southwestern
  Mendocino Interior.

* From late Sunday night through Tuesday afternoon

* Rainfall amounts from 2 to 4 inches are forecast to occur Sunday
  night through Tuesday afternoon. Locally higher amounts are
  possible, particularly in south facing mountainous terrain.

* Primary impacts will be localized ponding of water on low
  lying roadways with poor drainage, as well as rising water
  levels for area streams and rivers. Flooding near the coast
  will be enhanced during high tide. In addition, heavy rain
  combined with gusty winds will increase the potential for rock
  and mud slides on mountain roads.

PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS...

A Flood Watch means there is a potential for flooding based on
current forecasts. You should monitor later forecasts and be
alert for possible flood warnings. Those living in areas prone to
flooding should be prepared to take action should flooding
develop.
