* showers and thunderstorms with moderate to heavy rainfall will
cross the area today. Widespread rainfall of 1 to 2 inches, with
locally higher amounts up to 4 inches will be possible in the
stronger thunderstorms.

* Due to the widespread rain that has fallen over much of this
area since the past weekend, the ground is near saturation and
stream levels are already running above normal. It will not take
much additional rainfall to produce flash flooding along smaller
creeks and streams. Main Stem rivers and their associated
tributaries will also rise gradually, and some minor flooding
will be possible along these streams.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

A Flash Flood Watch means that conditions may develop that lead
to flash flooding. Flash flooding is a very dangerous situation.

You should monitor later forecasts and be prepared to take action
should flash flood warnings be issued.
