* High rainfall rates could overwhelm drainage capacity. Ponding of
water in low lying and poor drainage areas can be expected, with
flash flooding possible where the heaviest rain falls.

PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS...

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.

Be sure to have multiple ways to receive flash flood warnings should
they become necessary for your area. And remember, never drive
through flooded roadways as the water may be too deep for safe
passage.
