... Flash Flood Watch remains in effect through late tonight...

The Flash Flood Watch continues for

* portions of southeast Maryland and Virginia... including the
following areas... in southeast Maryland... Dorchester... inland
Worcester... Maryland beaches... Somerset and Wicomico. In
Virginia... eastern Essex... eastern King William... eastern King
And Queen... Lancaster... Middlesex... New Kent...
Northumberland... Richmond... western Essex... western King
William... western King And Queen and Westmoreland.

* Through late tonight

* locally heavy rainfall from showers and thunderstorms will
persist across the region through tonight. Additional rainfall
amounts are expected to range from 1 to 2 inches with locally
higher amounts possible. Excessive runoff from heavy rain
increases the potential for flooding across the area especially
for locations that have received recent heavy rain, and for low
lying and poor drainage areas.

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.
