Some storms may track over the same locations for a time, resulting in excessive rainfall with the potential for 1 to 3 inches of rain in a very short period of time. * The risk of flash flooding will increase where excessive rainfall rates persist. Flooding in urban areas especially is likely if torrential downpours occur, and rapid rises on small creeks and streams are possible.
PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS… A Flash Flood Watch means that there is the potential for flash flooding, which can be life-threatening. Heavy rain is expected to occur over a short period of time. Rapidly rising flood waters may quickly inundate some roadways. Streams and creeks could leave their banks, flooding nearby properties. Please monitor the forecast, especially if you live in a location that is prone to flooding. Be prepared to take action if a flash flood warning is issued for your area.
