...FLOOD WATCH IN EFFECT FROM SATURDAY AFTERNOON THROUGH MONDAY
EVENING...

The National Weather Service in Melbourne has issued a

* Flood Watch for a portion of east central Florida, including
the following areas, Coastal Volusia County, Indian River,
Inland Volusia County, Martin, Northern Brevard County,
Northern Lake County, Okeechobee, Orange, Osceola, Seminole,
Southern Brevard County, Southern Lake County, and St. Lucie.

* From Saturday afternoon through Monday evening

* A prolonged period of heavy rainfall potential is expected
across the area as Alberto moves northward through the Gulf of
Mexico and pulls deep tropical moisture over east central
Florida. Widespread rainfall amounts of 3 to 5 inches are
possible. Storm total rainfall amounts may reach up to 6 to 8
inches in localized by Monday. This will cause a concern for
flooding across east central Florida, especially in areas that
received heavy rainfall earlier this month.

* Heavy rainfall will have the potential to cause flooding on
roadways and in low-lying and poor drainage areas. Do not drive
across flooded roadways.

PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS...

A Flood Watch means there is a potential for flooding based on
current forecasts. You should monitor later forecasts and be
alert for possible Flood Warnings. Those living in areas prone to
flooding should be prepared to take action should flooding
develop.
