...FLASH FLOOD WATCH REMAINS IN EFFECT UNTIL 8 PM EDT THIS
EVENING...

The Flash Flood Watch continues for

* Portions of central New York and northeast Pennsylvania,
  including the following areas, in central New York, Broome and
  Tioga. In northeast Pennsylvania, Bradford and Susquehanna.

* Until 8 PM EDT this evening

* Scattered thunderstorms with very heavy rain should be coming to
  an end late this afternoon, but additional brief rain showers
  are still possible and may still cause quick runoff and
  exacerbate current flooding problems. Portions of Bradford and
  Susquehanna Counties in Pennsylvania as well as Broome and Tioga
  Counties in New York received 2 to 4 plus inches of rain last
  night and another 1 to 2 inches this afternoon. An additional
  half inch of rain in a short period of time through this evening
  is possible.

* Most favorable areas for flash flooding are the poor drainage
  areas in and around urban locations, and the sensitive areas
  that have recently received heavy rain and experienced
  flooding.

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.
