... Rapid rises possible on area streams... creeks... and rivers
later today...

Showers and thunderstorms are expected to develop this afternoon
and bring widespread rainfall to the region. While runoff from
this rainfall may not cause flooding... it can still cause rapid
rises in levels of streams... creeks... and rivers. This may cause
hazardous conditions to develop for anyone fishing... boating... or
swimming in the water.

Get clear of the water at the first sign of rising levels. It
does not have to be raining where you are for water levels to
start rising due to rainfall elsewhere. And never go out in a boat
without a life jacket.
