.NOW...THROUGH EARLY EVENING. A FLOOD WATCH REMAINS IN EFFECT FOR ALL
EAST CENTRAL FLORIDA COUNTIES INTO MONDAY. THE LOCAL ATMOSPHERE IS
EXTREMELY MOIST AND POISED TO PRODUCE ADDITIONAL HEAVY RAIN ONCE
AGAIN. EVENT TOTALS THROUGH MONDAY MAY REACH UP TO 5 TO 6 INCHES IN
SPOTS WITHIN AREAS OF EXCESSIVE RAIN.

IN FACT...GENEROUS RAINS YESTERDAY OVER THE SHINGLE CREEK BASIN IN
SOUTHWEST ORANGE AND NORTHWEST OSCEOLA COUNTIES HAVE SWELLED WATER
LEVELS TOWARD ACTION STAGE THERE. THE BASIN WILL NEED TO BE MONITORED
CLOSELY FOR ADDITIONAL HEAVY RAIN. IT IS EXPECTED TO RISE ABOVE
ACTION STAGE LATER THIS EVENING AND COULD REACH FLOOD STAGE EARLY
THIS WEEK IF HEAVY RAIN PERSISTS. RESIDENTS NEED TO BE READY TO ACT
QUICKLY IF FLOOD WARNINGS ARE ISSUED. THIS IS TRUE FOR MANY OTHER
PLACES...ESPECIALLY SINCE SOME AREAS HAVE ALREADY RECEIVED RECENT
RAINFALL THAT HAS SATURATED THE GROUND CONDITIONS. NEVER DRIVE
THROUGH PLACES WHERE WATER OF UNKNOWN DEPTH COVERS THE ROAD.

BANDS OF SHOWERS AND STORMS WILL CONTINUE TO DEVELOP AND MOVE ACROSS
THE AREA INTO THIS EVENING. CONCERNS CONTINUE TO BE HEAVY
DOWNPOURS...FREQUENT LIGHTNING...GUSTY WINDS TO 40 TO 50 MPH...AND
NUISANCE FLOODING. MOVEMENT OF PRECIPITATION IS TOWARDS THE NORTH TO
NORTHWEST.
