...FLOOD WATCH REMAINS IN EFFECT THROUGH THIS EVENING...

THE FLOOD WATCH CONTINUES FOR

* EAST CENTRAL FLORIDA...INCLUDING THE FOLLOWING AREAS...LAKE...
  ORANGE...SEMINOLE...VOLUSIA...OSCEOLA...BREVARD...
  INDIAN RIVER...ST. LUCIE...MARTIN AND OKEECHOBEE.

* THROUGH THIS EVENING

* DEEP MOISTURE AND AN APPROACHING FRONTAL BOUNDARY WILL ALLOW
  NUMEROUS SHOWERS AND THUNDERSTORMS TO DEVELOP ACROSS EAST
  CENTRAL FLORIDA THIS AFTERNOON. SHOWERS AND STORMS ARE EXPECTED
  TO PRODUCE HEAVY RAINFALL AMOUNTS OF TWO TO THREE INCHES WITH
  SOME LOCATIONS SEEING HIGHER AMOUNTS WHERE STORMS MOVE OVER THE
  SAME AREAS. THE HEAVIEST RAINFALL AMOUNTS MAY OCCUR FROM LAKE
  AND VOLUSIA COUNTIES SOUTH TO OSCEOLA AND BREVARD COUNTIES INCLUDING
  THE ORLANDO AREA THIS AFTERNOON. THE THREAT FOR LOCALLY HEAVY
  RAINFALL IS EXPECTED TO CONTINUE INTO EARLY EVENING AS THE
  FRONTAL BOUNDARY MOVES SOUTH TOWARD OSCEOLA AND BREVARD
  COUNTIES. ACROSS OKEECHOBEE COUNTY AND THE TREASURE COAST
  SHOWERS AND STORMS WITH LOCALLY HEAVY RAIN WILL MOVE EASTWARD
  TOWARD THE COAST FROM MID TO LATE AFTERNOON INTO THE EARLY
  EVENING HOURS WITH ADDITIONAL HEAVY RAIN AMOUNTS UP TO TWO TO
  THREE INCHES.

* ADDITIONAL HEAVY RAINFALL WILL BRING THE POTENTIAL FOR FLOODING
  TO ROADWAYS...AND LOW-LYING AND POOR DRAINAGE AREAS. AREAS THAT
  HAVE RECEIVED HEAVY RAINFALL OVER THE PAST WEEK WILL BE
  ESPECIALLY VULNERABLE TO FLOODING SHOULD HEAVY RAIN DEVELOP.
  SMALLER CREEKS AND RIVERS ALREADY AT ELEVATED LEVELS MAY SEE
  RAPID RISES OF WATER WITH ANY HEAVY RAINFALL LEADING TO THE
  POTENTIAL FOR FLOODING.

PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS...

A FLOOD WATCH MEANS THERE IS A POTENTIAL FOR FLOODING BASED ON
CURRENT FORECASTS.

YOU SHOULD MONITOR THE LATEST FORECASTS AND BE ALERT FOR POSSIBLE
FLOOD WARNINGS. THOSE LIVING IN AREAS PRONE TO FLOODING SHOULD BE
PREPARED TO TAKE ACTION SHOULD FLOODING DEVELOP.

DO NOT DRIVE YOUR VEHICLE INTO AREAS WHERE THE WATER COVERS ROADWAYS.
THE WATER DEPTH MAY BE TOO GREAT TO ALLOW YOUR CAR TO CROSS
SAFELY.
