* Additional heavy rain on nearly saturated soils will increase the potential for flooding. Rapid rises on small streams and creeks are possible. There is also the potential to see flooding of area roadways along with mud or rock slides in steep terrain.

PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS...

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.
