Flash flood watch in effect

A flash flood watch is in effect for northern and northwestern districts.

A flash flood watch is issued when heavy or excessive rainfall in a short period of time (generally less than six hours) could result in flash flooding within the watch area. It does not mean that flooding will occur, but it is possible.

Hazard Info

Localized activity across the northern and northwestern districts is likely to generate one to two inches of rainfall in scattered moderate heavy showers throughout the afternoon.
