evening. With the ground being saturated from previous rains,
coupled with streams and rivers running high, this rain has the
potential to cause flooding throughout the area.

* Flooded roadways are a possibility, especially along streams,
creeks and rivers. Flooding of Low lying, poor drainage areas,
streams, creeks and rivers are possible.


A Flood Watch means there is a potential for flooding based on
current forecasts.

You should monitor later forecasts and be alert for possible
Flood Warnings. Those living in areas prone to flooding should be
prepared to take action should flooding develop.
