* through late tonight

* A slow moving and potent storm system coupled with a slow moving
  front will continue to interact with a very moist airmass to
  produce additional heavy rainfall through this evening.
  Additional rainfall amounts of around one inch with locally
  higher amounts on top of the already saturated grounds and
  rivers and streams running at bankfull from the heavy rains the
  last couple of days will lead to additional flooding concerns
  today into tonight.

* Heavy rainfall will result in flooding of low lying or poor
  drainage areas...and ultimately dangerous flash flooding on
  smaller creeks and streams. Moderate to major flooding is also
  possible on larger streams and rivers.


A Flash Flood Watch is advanced notice that conditions are
favorable that may lead to flash flooding. People in the Watch
area, especially in flood prone areas, should use this time to
make preparations just in case. Stay informed, and be ready for
quick action if flooding is observed or if a Flash Flood Warning
is issued.
