* FROM WEDNESDAY MORNING THROUGH WEDNESDAY NIGHT

* A WEATHER SYSTEM WILL BRING SHOWERS AND THUNDERSTORMS TO THE
  AREA WEDNESDAY THROUGH WEDNESDAY NIGHT. THE SHOWERS AND
  THUNDERSTORMS ARE EXPECTED TO PRODUCE HEAVY RAINFALL AS THEY
  MOVE OVER THE AREA. AN AREA OF 1 TO 2 INCHES OF RAINFALL CAN BE
  EXPECTED SOUTH OF I-72 THROUGH THE PERIOD WITH LOCALLY HIGHER
  AMOUNTS POSSIBLE. UP TO 1 INCH OF RAIN IS POSSIBLE NORTH OF
  I-72. THE GROUND STILL REMAINS SATURATED FROM AROUND 1 INCH OF
  RAIN RECEIVED IN PAST 24 HOURS WITH LOCALLY 1.5 TO 3 INCH
  AMOUNTS. SO ANY ADDITIONAL HEAVY RAINFALL COULD LEAD TO FLASH
  FLOODING OF LOW LYING AREAS AND POOR DRAINAGE AREAS.

* HEAVY RAINFALL WILL RESULT IN FLOODING OF POOR DRAINAGE AND
  LOW LYING AREAS...RESULTING IN THE POTENTIAL OF DANGEROUS
  FLOODING ON SMALLER CREEKS AND STREAMS. THIS COULD ALSO CAUSE
  RISES ON LARGER RIVERS AND STREAMS THAT ARE HAVE BEEN RECEDING
  IN THE PAST COUPLE OF DAYS...AND CAUSE OTHER RIVERS TO REMAIN
  IN THE STATE OF FLOOD FOR A LONGER PERIOD OF TIME.

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.
