Storm total average rainfall is forecast to range from one and a quarter to two and a quarter inches in the Watch area and, with thunderstorms forecast, localized higher totals up to 3 inches or more are possible. This amount of cumulative rainfall will be falling on recently soaked grounds from melted snowfall, so the ability to soak in all this expected rainfall will be compromised and likely to cause flood issues.
