The flash flood watch will be remain in effect through mid-day Thursday.

Periods of heavy rainfall today through mid-day Thursday March 1 will provide the potential for flash flooding and flooding across the watch area. Between one to three inches will occur, with isolated higher amounts being possible. Saturated soils and swollen rivers from recent heavy rain events will enhance the risk of flash flooding due to rapid water runoff.

Flash flooding of roads, low lying, and poor drainage areas will be possible. If you encounter flash flooding or high water over roadways and bridges while driving your vehicle, remember to turn around, don`t drown.
