Precautionary/preparedness actions...

A Flood Watch means there is a potential for flooding based on
current forecasts.

River flood warnings have been issued for several rivers in the
Flood Watch area. These are based on some of the rain that has
already fallen as well as forecast rainfall expected through
Sunday. If you live near these warned rivers or near other
streams in the area... take appropriate action to protect your
life and property.

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.
