Radar rainfall estimates that nearly 4 inches have fallen over the past hour in portions of this region...and an additional 1 to 2 inches will be possible before storms weaken and move northeast.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

A Flood Advisory means heavy rainfall is causing or is likely to cause ponding of water in urban areas. Excessive runoff will cause temporary flooding of urban areas...such as highways...streets and intersections as well as poor drainage areas and low lying spots. Minor flooding may cause temporary Lane or Road closures but the threat of water entering homes and businesses is low.

Motorists should deactivate cruise control and slow down in heavy rainfall to reduce the risk of hydroplaning. Leave safe distance between other vehicles.

Do not drive your vehicle into areas where the water covers the roadway. The water depth may be too great to allow your car to cross safely.
