Total rain amounts by late Sunday are expected to be 1 to 2 inches with locally higher amounts possible. This will result in rises on rivers and streams with the potential for urban, small stream, and poor drainage flooding. Flash flooding will also be possible in places if the heaviest rain persists in the same location for several hours. * Rain will taper off through the latter portion of Sunday afternoon into Sunday evening. PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS... A Flash Flood Watch means that there is the potential for flash flooding which can be life-threatening. Heavy rain is expected to occur over a short period of time. Rapidly rising flood waters may quickly inundate roadways and areas of poor drainage. Streams and creeks could leave their banks, flooding nearby properties. Please monitor the forecast, especially if you live in a location that is prone to flooding. Be prepared to take action if a flash flood warning is issued for your area.
