Soils remain very moist from the well above average rainfall
during the first 10 days of November.

* Expect drainage issues this time of year due to Leaf debris
and clogged drains to enhance localized street flooding.
Several creeks and rivers are projected to go a foot or two
above flood stage based on the forecast rainfall.

Precautionary/preparedness actions…

A Flood Watch means there is a potential for flooding based on
current forecasts.

You should monitor later forecasts and be alert for possible
flood warnings. Those living in areas prone to flooding should be
prepared to take action should flooding develop.
