Flash flooding and ponding was reported Saturday afternoon and evening

Additional heavy rains are possible in the mid state late tonight

flooding. Those in the Flash Flood Watch area should remain alert
to the weather... and be prepared to move to higher ground if more
heavy rains develop and flash flooding develops.
