* Through late tonight 

 

* Numerous showers and thunderstorms are expected this afternoon 

and continue through tonight. Between 1 and 3 inches of rain can 

be expected this afternoon, with locally higher amounts. Due to 

recent rainfall, the ground will not be able to absorb this 

rainfall. 

 

* Rapid rises of creeks and streams will be likely due to 

repeated rounds of torrential rainfall. Low lying areas will 

be particularly susceptible. Runoff from the heavy rainfall 

likely will accumulate on roads making them impassible. Flash 

flooding may develop quickly. Be prepared to act if 

floodwaters threaten.
