possible... especially in the mountains.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

A Flash Flood Watch means that conditions are becoming favorable
for widespread flash flooding to develop. Monitor forecasts
closely and be ready to take quick action if flash flood warnings
are issued.

Be especially cautious at night when it is harder to recognize
the dangers of flash floods. If flash flooding is observed... act
quickly. Turn around and take another Route.

Stay tuned to NOAA Weather Radio... commercial radio or television
stations... or your cable television provider for updates on this
flash flood threat.
