showers could result in localized flash flooding along small
streams and in urban areas. Saturated ground may also result
in downed trees and rock or mud slides.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

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.
