POTENTIAL FOR LOCALIZED RAINFALL AMOUNTS OF 2 OR MORE INCHES IN

URBAN AREAS. ISOLATED RAINFALL AMOUNTS OF 4 INCHES OR MORE ARE
POSSIBLE DURING THIS EVENT WHERE STORMS MOVE REPEATEDLY OVER
THE SAME AREA.

PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS...

A FLASH FLOOD WATCH MEANS THAT CONDITIONS MAY DEVELOP THAT LEAD
