* a slow moving trough will continue the potential for moderate to
heavy rainfall over the watch area. Rainfall over the past
several days has caused ground saturation throughout the region.

* Additional amounts of 1 to 2 inches of rainfall will be possible
through noon today. If this amount falls over a short period on
already saturated ground, flash flooding could result. In
addition there could be some minor river flooding issues as
well.

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.
