Flash Flood Watch

Statement as of 9:35 AM AST on August 21, 2014

Expires 8:00 AM EDT on August 23, 2014


... Flash Flood Watch in effect from late tonight through Saturday
morning...

The National Weather Service in San Juan has issued a

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

* From late tonight 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 at 10 to 15
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.
