...FLASH FLOOD WATCH REMAINS IN EFFECT THROUGH TUESDAY EVENING...

THE FLASH FLOOD WATCH CONTINUES FOR

* A PORTION OF CENTRAL PENNSYLVANIA...INCLUDING THE FOLLOWING
  COUNTIES...ADAMS...BEDFORD...BLAIR...CAMBRIA...CAMERON...
  CLEARFIELD...COLUMBIA...CUMBERLAND...DAUPHIN...FRANKLIN...

  SOMERSET...SULLIVAN...TIOGA...UNION AND YORK.

* THROUGH TUESDAY EVENING.

* RECENT RAINS HAVE LEFT THE GROUND WET AND MOST STREAMS ARE
  RUNNING ABOVE NORMAL. DEEP TROPICAL MOISTURE WILL KEEP THE AREA
  UNDER THE THREAT OF HEAVY SHOWERS AND THUNDERSTORMS THAT COULD
  CAUSE RAINFALL RATES IN EXCESS OF 2 INCHES PER HOUR...CAUSING
  LOCALIZED FLASH FLOODING. ALTHOUGH THE THREAT OF FLOODING
  OVERNIGHT IS LOW...IT WILL INCREASE AGAIN ON TUESDAY AS SHOWERS
  RE-INTENSIFY.

* NORMAL LOW LYING AREAS...AS WELL AS SMALLER STREAMS COULD SEE
  FLOODING DEVELOP QUICKLY AS LOCALIZED DOWNPOURS DEVELOP AND
  MOVE NORTH ACROSS THE AREA.

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.
