...Heavy Rainfall and Flash Flooding Possible....

Showers and thunderstorms are expected to increase in coverage as we head into the afternoon. These thunderstorms will probably produce rain rates of up to 2"/hr. This could result in total rainfall amounts of 2-3" of rain with locally heavier amounts. Flash flooding will be possible. However, widespread flash flooding is NOT expected but localized flooding is a concern.

A Flash Flood Watch is in effect thru midnight tonight, The watch area could be expanded based on how the rainfall evolves as the day wears on.

What to do During a Flood Warning or Flash Flood Warning

* Do not walk through flowing water. Most drownings occur during flash floods. ...
* Remember the phrase “Turn Around, Don't Drown!” Don't drive through flooded roads. Cars can be swept away in only two feet of moving water.
* Do not drive around road barriers.
