Widespread flash flooding is likely to result given the
saturated soils that can not handle much more rain.
Saturday night and Sunday may produce a particularly dangerous flood
situation. Anyone who has outdoor activities or travel planned
over the coming Holiday weekend should closely monitor conditions
for possible closures of roads and recreational areas... and plan
accordingly.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

A Flash Flood Watch means rapidly rising water or flooding is
possible within the watch area.

If you are in the watch area... keep informed... and be ready for
quick action if flash flooding is observed or if a warning is
issued.

If you live near... or travel across a stream... creek or river
often subject to flooding... now is the time to prepare for
dangerous flooding.
