...FLASH FLOOD WATCH IN EFFECT FROM 8 AM AST THIS MORNING THROUGH
WEDNESDAY EVENING...

The National Weather Service in San Juan has issued a

* Flash Flood Watch for a portion of Puerto Rico, including the
  following areas, Central Interior, Culebra, Eastern Interior,
  Mayaguez and Vicinity, North Central, Northeast, Northwest,
  Ponce and Vicinity, San Juan and Vicinity, Southeast,
  Southwest, Vieques, and Western Interior.

* From 8 AM AST this morning through Wednesday evening

* Abundant moisture will bring scattered to numerous showers and
  thunderstorms to portions of Puerto Rico through Wednesday.
  Soils are already saturated, and many rivers continue to run
  above normal. Any additional heavy rainfall may lead to urban
  and small stream and/or flash flooding.

* There is a high risk of river and small stream flooding as well
  as mudslides and rockfall in areas of steep terrain both in
  rural and urban areas. Urban flooding is also likely across low
  lying and poor drainage areas. Any additional rainfall across
  these areas can lead to flash 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.
