Any thunderstorms are expected to be very efficient rainfall producers and will lead to widespread minor nuisance flooding with the potential for more serious flooding over localized areas where heavy rainfall can focus for a period of time. Widespread rainfall amounts of 1 to 2 inches can be expected through midday Saturday with locally higher amounts.
  • Heavy rainfall will result in flooding of low lying or poor drainage areas...and ultimately dangerous flash flooding on smaller creeks and streams. Significant rises on larger streams and rivers will also be possible. Precautionary/preparedness actions... A Flash Flood Watch means that flash flooding is possible but not imminent in the watch area. People in the watch area should be aware of the possibility of heavy rainfall and flash flooding. Check your preparedness requirements...especially if you live in flood prone areas. Stay informed...and be ready for quick action if flooding is observed or if a Flash Flood Warning is issued.
