* Through this evening

* Additional scattered storm development is expected again this
  morning through early evening, with total additional rainfall up
  to 1.5 inches possible. However, high rainfall rates of around
  an inch per hour may lead to quick flooding and/or flash
  flooding issues.

* With very wet soil conditions across much of the region, any
  heavy rain will quickly convert to runoff, either aggravating
  ongoing flooding or helping to re-initiate high water issues.
  Many low lying areas will be quick to flood should heavy rain


People in the watch area should keep an eye on the weather and be
prepared for immediate action should heavy rains and flooding
occur or a Flash Flood Warning be issued. Avoid low-lying areas,
and be careful when approaching highway dips and underpasses.
