...FLASH FLOOD WATCH REMAINS IN EFFECT THROUGH THURSDAY AFTERNOON...

The Flash Flood Watch continues for

* Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands.

* Through Thursday afternoon

* There is a high risk for flash flooding across Puerto Rico and the
  U.S. Virgin Islands through Thursday afternoon as a strong
  tropical wave just east of the area moves to the west-northwest
  and across the islands during the next day or so. However, the
  moisture associated with the tropical wave will continue to pool
  over the area through Thursday.

* This moisture, combined with an upper level trough, will
  increase the risk for flooding, especially from Wednesday
  morning through Wednesday evening across the local islands.


PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS...

A Flash Flood Watch means that conditions may develop that lead
to flash flooding. Flash flooding is a very dangerous situation.

You should monitor for the latest forecasts and be prepared to
