inches of rain. With the already saturated ground, most of
this rain will flow into streams and creeks and eventually
into the rivers, making flooding a good possibility.

roadways along streams, creeks and rivers.

A Flood Watch means there is a potential for flooding based on
current forecasts.

You should monitor later forecasts and be alert for possible
flood warnings. Those living in areas prone to flooding should be
prepared to take action should flooding develop.
