A flash flood watch is in effect for most of the day today.
The National Weather Service issued an alert that runs from 10 a.m. through 10 p.m. this evening.
Heavy rainfall, with the potential for flooding, is expected, according to the NWS.
Here’s more from the county on the alert:
Widespread rainfall totals of 1 1/2 to 2 1/2 inches are expected with locally higher amounts of three inches or more possible.
This amount of rainfall will likely result in small stream and main stem river flooding. Moderate river flooding is also possible.
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.
Rain will continue through the day across the area. The attached graphic shows high end potential rainfall amounts through the remainder of the event (doesn't include rain that has already fallen). Instances of flooding are likely through the day. pic.twitter.com/eNM3syXqGI
