* Ground conditions are already saturated from earlier flooding
rainfall. Rains of this magnitude will only cause flooding or

areas already inundated by backwater from area rivers and
creeks, sharp rises in water levels can be expected in a short
period of time.

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.
