producers... meaning the environment is suited for rainfall rates
in excess of 1 to 2 inches per hour at times.

* With the anticipated rainfall rates on top of an already very
saturated ground... a flash flood could occur in a very short
time frame and is especially dangerous at night.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

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

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