* AN UPPER LEVEL TROUGH WILL REMAIN IN PLACE OVER THE GREAT LAKES
  TODAY AS A PIECE OF JET ENERGY ROTATES THROUGH IT. AS COOLER AIR
  ALOFT MOVES OVER THE RELATIVELY WARM WATERS OF LAKE ERIE IT WILL
  HELP TO ENHANCE THE RAINFALL THAT DEVELOPS. IF A BAND OF SHOWERS
  AND THUNDERSTORMS CAN SET UP OVER A REGION IT COULD LEAD TO
  FLOODING. MOST LOCATIONS WILL ONLY SEE AN ADDITIONAL QUARTER TO
  HALF AN INCH WITH LOCALLY HIGHER AMOUNTS POSSIBLE.

* EXCESSIVE RUNOFF FROM HEAVY RAINFALL MAY PRODUCE FLOODING IN
  POOR DRAINAGE AND LOW LYING AREAS.

PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS...

A FLASH FLOOD WATCH MEANS THE THREAT OF FLASH FLOODING EXISTS
ALONG RIVERS AND CREEKS. IF YOU ARE IN THE WATCH AREA YOU SHOULD
MONITOR WEATHER CONDITIONS CLOSELY. BE READY TO MOVE TO HIGHER
GROUND IF FLOODING IS OBSERVED OR A WARNING IS ISSUED. STAY TUNED
TO WEATHER RADIO FOR FURTHER UPDATES.
