    ...FLASH FLOOD WATCH NOW IN EFFECT THROUGH TUESDAY MORNING...

    The Flash Flood Watch is now in effect for

    portions of southeast Louisiana and Mississippi, including the
    following areas, in southeast Louisiana, Assumption, Lower
    Jefferson, Lower Lafourche, Lower Plaquemines, Lower St.
    Bernard, Lower Terrebonne, Orleans, St. Charles, St. James,
    St. John The Baptist, St. Tammany, Upper Jefferson, Upper
    Lafourche, Upper Plaquemines, Upper St. Bernard, and Upper
    Terrebonne. In Mississippi, Hancock, Harrison, Jackson, and
    Pearl River.

    through Tuesday morning

    A stalled front will likely bring another round or two of heavy
    rainfall over the watch area. Much of the area has already
    received heavy rainfall over the weekend which has resulted in a
    saturated ground.

    Additional heavy rainfall from thunderstorms is expected to
    produce additional amounts generally between 2 and 3 inches,
    much of which could fall in a brief period of time. Locally
    higher amounts are expected. This will result in rapid runoff
    and possible flash flooding. In addition there could be some
    minor river flooding issues as well.

    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.
