* THROUGH THIS EVENING

* SHOWERS AND STORMS ARE EXPECTED TO INCREASE IN COVERAGE TODAY.
  LOCAL DOWNPOURS ARE LIKELY.

* DUE TO THE RECENT ROUNDS OF SHOWERS AND STORMS...THE GROUND IS
  WETTER THAN NORMAL. THAT ALLOWS FOR FASTER RUNOFF INTO 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 3 INCHES OR MORE WOULD 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 THIS EVENING. BE PREPARED TO TAKE
ACTION SHOULD WATER LEVELS RISE QUICKLY...OR A FLASH FLOOD
WARNING IS POSTED.

ALSO...BEING THE START 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.
