* Through Tuesday morning

* Showers and thunderstorms with locally heavy rain will spread
north into the area this morning. Periods of heavy rain are
expected to continue during the day Monday lasting into the
overnight hours. An average of one to three inches of rain
is expected.

* A very moist air mass will be in place across the area,
resulting in showers and thunderstorms capable of producing very
heavy rain with high rainfall rates. In addition, after several
weeks of intermittent rainfall, soil conditions are wetter than
normal in many locations. This will result in more efficient
water runoff, which will enhance flash flood potential,
especially near already swollen creeks and streams, and in urban
or poor drainage areas.
