Flash Flood Watch

Statement as of 2:55 PM AST on August 21, 2014

Expires 8:00 AM EDT on August 23, 2014


... Flash Flood Watch remains in effect from 2 am AST Friday through
Saturday morning...

The Flash Flood Watch continues for

* all of Puerto Rico... including Vieques and Culebra and for the
U.S. Virgin Islands.

* From 2 am AST Friday through Saturday morning

* a strong tropical wave will approach the local islands late
tonight into Friday. Numerous showers with thunderstorms are
expected to spread across the region associated with this wave.
Therefore... a much wetter pattern is expected as associated deep
tropical moisture move across the region. Based on the latest
hurricane center guidance... environmental conditions are
expected to be conductive for development during the next couple
of days while the system moves west-northwestward around 20 mph.

* Regardless of development... periods of moderate to heavy
rainfall are possible late tonight through at least Saturday
morning across Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands with an
increasing potential for urban and flash flooding. Rainfall
totals between 4 to 6 inches with locally higher amounts are
possible.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

A Flash Flood Watch means that conditions are favorable for heavy
rain across the watch area... which may lead to flooding. If you are
in the watch area... check your preparedness requirements...
especially if you have interests along area rivers. Keep informed...
and be ready for quick action if flooding is observed or if a Flash
Flood Warning is issued.

People in the watch area should continue to be aware of the
possibility for heavy rainfall. Avoid low lying areas... and be
careful when approaching Highway dips and underpasses. The heavy
rain could also cause mudslides in areas of steep terrain.

Stay tuned to NOAA Weather Radio... local TV... radio or your cable
television provider for later statements and possible warnings.
