Flash Flood Watch

Statement as of 2:42 PM EDT on July 05, 2015

Expires 6:00 AM EDT on July 06, 2015


... Flash Flood Watch in effect through late tonight...

The National Weather Service in Charleston has expanded the

* Flash Flood Watch to include a portion of northern West
Virginia... including the following areas... Barbour... Lewis...
Pocahontas... Randolph and Upshur.

* Through late tonight

* showers... with a few thunderstorms... are expected to increase in
coverage this afternoon. Local downpours are likely.

* Due to the recent rounds of showers and storms... the ground is
wetter than normal. That allows for faster runoff... and
quicker rises on small streams and creeks. Rains of 1 to 2
inches in less than a few hours could cause vulnerable streams
to flood. Local rain amounts of 2.5 inches or more could cause
more serious flash flooding.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

A Flash Flood Watch means that conditions may develop that lead
to flash flooding. Flash flooding is a dangerous situation.

Those living along flood prone creeks... plus County and state
officials... should monitor water levels frequently during any
heavier showers today and tonight. Be prepared to take action
should water levels rise quickly... or a Flash Flood Warning is
posted.

Also... being the end of the Independence day Holiday weekend...
travelers need to slow down during any heavier rain. Do not drive
through water flowing across roads... or into flooded underpasses.
