* Through this evening
* Increasing showers and isolated thunderstorms will provide the
potential for locally heavy rainfall today. The activity may be
accompanied by tropical downpours, as Cindy continues on her
ejection path across the Tennessee valley through this afternoon
and early evening. Total rainfall amounts will likely average
from 1 to 3 inches across the Watch area...but of course locally
higher amounts are possible where thunderstorms repeat, or
* High rainfall rates could lead to rapid inundation of flood
prone roadways. Sharp rises in creeks and small streams may
occur. Low lying areas may quickly become flooded.
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 or Flood Advisories be issued.
