and streams. In addition, a few main stem rivers could also
rise above flood depending on the areas that receive the
heaviest rainfall.

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.
