Areal Flood Watch
Statement as of 03:50 AM EDT del 30 Settembre 2014

...Flood Watch remains in effect through this evening...

The Flood Watch continues for

* east central Florida...including the following areas...Lake... Orange...Seminole...Volusia...Osceola...Brevard... Indian River...St. Lucie...Martin and Okeechobee.

* Through this evening

* deep moisture and an approaching frontal boundary will allow numerous showers and thunderstorms to develop across east central Florida this afternoon. Showers and storms are expected to produce heavy rainfall amounts of two to three inches with some locations seeing higher amounts where storms move over the same areas. The heaviest rainfall amounts may occur from lake and Volusia counties south to Osceola and Brevard counties including the Orlando area this afternoon. The threat for locally heavy rainfall is expected to continue into early evening as the frontal boundary moves south toward Osceola and Brevard counties. Across Okeechobee County and the Treasure Coast showers and storms with locally heavy rain will move eastward toward the coast from mid to late afternoon into the early evening hours with additional heavy rain amounts up to two to three inches.

* Additional heavy rainfall will bring the potential for flooding to roadways...and low-lying and poor drainage areas. Areas that have received heavy rainfall over the past week will be especially vulnerable to flooding should heavy rain develop. Smaller creeks and rivers already at elevated levels may see rapid rises of water with any heavy rainfall leading to the potential for flooding.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

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

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

Do not drive your vehicle into areas where the water covers roadways. The water depth may be too great to allow your car to cross safely.
