* From Wednesday afternoon through Thursday morning

* With the rain today and the rain that has fallen earlier this
week, has caused soils to become saturated. Streams, creeks and
rivers are also running at elevated levels. With the expected
rain on Wednesday and into Thursday, any rain will be mainly
runoff. This will increase the chances for flooding along
streams, creeks and rivers.


A Flash Flood Watch means that conditions may develop that lead to
Flash Flooding. Flash Flooding is a very dangerous situation. You
should monitor later forecasts and be prepared to take action should
Flash Flood Warnings be issued.

Stay away or be swept away. River banks and culverts can become
unstable and unsafe.


Be prepared to take action if water levels rise quickly.
