...FLASH FLOOD WATCH REMAINS IN EFFECT UNTIL 6 AM EDT EARLY THIS
MORNING...

THE FLASH FLOOD WATCH CONTINUES FOR

* PORTIONS OF CENTRAL WEST VIRGINIA AND NORTHERN WEST VIRGINIA...
   INCLUDING THE FOLLOWING AREAS...IN CENTRAL WEST VIRGINIA...
  NICHOLAS AND WEBSTER. IN NORTHERN WEST VIRGINIA...BARBOUR...
  POCAHONTAS...RANDOLPH AND UPSHUR.

* UNTIL 6 AM EDT THIS MORNING.

* A GENERALLY BROAD AREA OF SHOWERS IS MOVING ACROSS THE WATCH
  AREA EARLY THIS MORNING...WITH SOME EMBEDDED DOWNPOURS.

* DUE TO THE RECENT ROUNDS OF SHOWERS AND STORMS...THE GROUND IS
  WETTER THAN NORMAL. THAT ALLOWS FOR FASTER RUNOFF...AND
  QUICKER RISES ON SMALL STREAMS AND CREEKS. RAINS OF 1 TO 2
  INCHES IN LESS THAN A FEW HOURS COULD CAUSE VULNERABLE STREAMS
  TO FLOOD. LOCAL RAIN AMOUNTS OF 2.5 INCHES OR MORE COULD CAUSE
  MORE SERIOUS FLASH FLOODING.

PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS...

A FLASH FLOOD WATCH MEANS THAT CONDITIONS MAY DEVELOP THAT LEAD
TO FLASH FLOODING. FLASH FLOODING IS A DANGEROUS SITUATION.

THOSE LIVING ALONG FLOOD PRONE CREEKS...PLUS COUNTY AND STATE
OFFICIALS...SHOULD MONITOR WATER LEVELS FREQUENTLY DURING ANY
HEAVIER SHOWERS TODAY AND TONIGHT. BE PREPARED TO TAKE ACTION
SHOULD WATER LEVELS RISE QUICKLY...OR A FLASH FLOOD WARNING IS
POSTED.

ALSO...BEING THE END OF THE INDEPENDENCE DAY HOLIDAY WEEKEND...
TRAVELERS NEED TO SLOW DOWN DURING ANY HEAVIER RAIN. DO NOT DRIVE
THROUGH WATER FLOWING ACROSS ROADS...OR INTO FLOODED UNDERPASSES.
