* With soils across most of the area saturated and rivers swelling
in response to rain that has already fallen, areal and river
flooding is expected. People living in flood prone locations,
such as near creeks, low spots, and poor drainage areas may be
impacted.

PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS...

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.
