the northern Blue Ridge and Catoctin Mountain also have an
increased risk for higher rain totals.

* Potential exists for flash flooding of small streams... creeks
and urban areas especially in areas of repeated activity.

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
