Heavy rain will develop across the area tonight and possibly continue into Monday.

This rain could potentially result in river flooding, water over roads, and mud and rock slides.

Be ready to move to higher ground and stay away from flood waters. Be especially cautious at night when it is harder to recognize flood dangers. Never drive your car into water of unknown depth. Have multiple ways to receive possible warnings, especially at night.
