...Ponding of water possible on roadways and other poor drainage
areas this morning...

1 to 2 inches of rain have already fallen across the area, with
some localized higher amounts up to 3 inches. Rainfall will
continue this morning, with periods of heavy downpours. This may
cause some drainage issues on roadways and low lying areas.

If you are traveling in this area, allow yourself extra time to
reach your destination. To avoid hydroplaning, be vigilant and
ready to adjust speeds if you encounter water on the roadway.
Additionally, do not attempt to drive through flooded areas.
