likely average from 2 to 4 inches in the watch area. Locally
higher amounts are possible where thunderstorms are persistent.

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 be issued.
