Flash Flood Watch to Start at 2 P.M. and Last Until Midnight

The National Weather Service has issued a flash flood watch beginning at 2 p.m.

Showers and thunderstorms could produce flooding over the next 24 hours, the weather service said. Torrential rainfall may lead to totals exceeding 2 inches in a short period of time. This may cause flash flooding of small streams and other poor drainage urban areas.

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 are issued.
