* Through late Saturday night

* Multiple rounds of rain, moderate to heavy at times, will
increase the risk for areal flooding through the first half of
the weekend.

* The main flooding concern will be along small streams and
creeks that feed into already swollen rivers across the region,
especially in areas that receive multiple rounds of moderate to
heavy rainfall. Elsewhere, elevated water levels in low lying
and poor drainage areas may lead to standing water across some
roads that typically flood.


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.
