- Through this evening
- showers and storms are expected to increase in coverage today. Local downpours are likely.
- Due to the recent rounds of showers and storms...the ground is wetter than normal. That allows for faster runoff into small streams and creeks. Rains of 1 to 2 inches in less than a few hours could cause vulnerable streams to flood. Local rain amounts of 3 inches or more would cause more serious flash flooding. Precautionary/preparedness actions... A Flash Flood Watch means that conditions may develop that lead to flash flooding. Flash flooding is a dangerous situation. Those living along flood prone creeks...plus County and state officials...should monitor water levels frequently during any heavier showers today and this evening. Be prepared to take action should water levels rise quickly...or a Flash Flood Warning is posted. Also...being the start of the Independence day Holiday weekend... travelers need to slow down during any heavier rain. Do not drive through water flowing across roads...or into flooded underpasses.
