* Flash Flood Watch for portions of northeast Ohio and northwest
Pennsylvania... including the following areas... in northeast
Ohio... Ashtabula inland... Ashtabula Lakeshore... Cuyahoga...
Geauga... Lake and Trumbull. In northwest Pennsylvania...
Crawford PA... northern Erie and southern Erie.

* Through Monday afternoon

* an area of low pressure and a potent upper level disturbance
will move east across Lake Erie tonight and early Monday. This
storm system has the potential to produce locally heavy rainfall
across portions of northeastern Ohio and northwestern
Pennsylvania. An additional 1 to 3 inches of rainfall is
possible in addition to the heavy rainfall that fell earlier
today. Lake Erie will help enhance the rainfall and rainfall
rates could approach two inches per hour.

* Excessive runoff from heavy rainfall may produce flooding in
poor drainage and low lying areas. If more widespread rainfall
amounts reach 2 inches flooding will also be possible along some
of the area rivers and creeks.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

A Flash Flood Watch means the threat of flash flooding exists
along rivers and creeks. If you are in the watch area you should
monitor weather conditions closely. Be ready to move to higher
ground if flooding is observed or a warning is issued. Stay tuned
to weather radio for further updates.
