.DAY ONE...This Afternoon and Tonight.

A cold front will push through the region today, encountering
abundant moisture and instability. Scattered thunderstorms are
expected to develop as a result. The primary threats will be cloud-
to-ground lightning, gusty winds, and locally heavy rain. Though the
likelihood of thunderstorms will decrease tonight, rain will increase
in coverage as the front stalls and low pressure moves along the
front and into the area. Isolated flooding could develop in poorly
drained areas, or areas where soils remain saturated after heavy rain

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Tuesday through Sunday.

..Tuesday...Heavy rain with flooding possible. Heavy rainfall may
continue until the stalled front moves out of the area, to the south
and east.
..Wednesday...Heavy rain with flooding possible. Another round of
rainfall will occur as a warm front moves into the area from the
south. Rainfall totals will likely reach 2 to 4 inches in many
places. Some creeks and streams may rise out of their banks. In
addition, embedded thunderstorms may produce localized flash
