OR EVEN AT FLOOD STAGE WILL BE AT RISK FOR FURTHER...MORE
IMPACTFUL...FLOODING OVER THE WEEKEND.

DETAILS OF THE FORECAST FOR THE WEEKEND MAY CHANGE SO IT WILL BE
IMPORTANT TO STAY UPDATED ON THE LATEST FORECAST. IF CONDITIONS
CONTINUE TO INDICATE THIS POTENTIAL...FLASH FLOOD WATCHES MAY BE
ISSUED. IT WILL BE IMPORTANT TO HEED ANY WARNINGS OR ADVISORIES.
