rainfall will develop once again with as much as an additional 1

once again, and it will not take much additional rainfall to
result in flash flooding over already flooded areas.

A Flash Flood Watch means that there is the potential for flash
flooding which can be life-threatening. Heavy rain is expected to
occur over a short period of time. Rapidly rising flood waters
may quickly inundate roadways. Streams and creeks could leave
their banks, flooding nearby properties.
Please monitor the forecast, especially if you live in a location
that is prone to flooding. Be prepared to take action if a flash
flood warning is issued for your area.
