locally higher rainfall amounts.

* Heavy rainfall may result in rapid rises in streams and
creeks. This could quickly result in flooding... especially in
low lying and poor drai

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