* Through this evening

* Tropical moisture will continue streaming northward into the
area today, resulting in showers and thunderstorms capable of
producing very heavy rain with high rainfall rates. Expect
widespread rainfall amounts of one to two inches with higher
local amounts of 3 to 4 inches possible, especially across the
eastern Midlands. This heavy rain, combined with saturated
grounds from recent rainfall, provides an enhanced threat of
flooding. Flash flooding near creeks, streams, poor drainage
areas, and some urban areas is possible.

* Motorists and persons engaged in outdoor activities should be
especially careful.


A Flash Flood Watch means that conditions may develop that lead
to flash flooding. Flash flooding is a VERY DANGEROUS SITUATION.

Do not attempt to drive on flooded roads. It takes little water
to move a vehicle off the road and into deeper water. Also, the
road bed may not be intact under flood waters.

You should monitor later forecasts and be prepared to take action
should Flash Flood Warnings be issued.
