Precautionary/preparedness actions…

A Flash Flood Watch means that conditions may develop that lead to flash flooding. Flash flooding is a very dangerous situation.

If possible avoid travel Tuesday night and Wednesday and expect delays if travel cannot be put off to a later time.

You should monitor later forecasts and be prepared to take action as flash flood warnings are issued.
