Flash-flood watch in effect
A flash-flood watch is in effect for Central, Western and North-western districts and will be terminated at 6 p.m. or sooner if conditions warrant.
A flash-flood watch is issued when heavy or excessive rainfall in a short period (generally less than six hours) could result in flash flooding within the watch area. It does not mean that flooding will occur, but it is possible.
Maximum rainfall accumulations of 25.0 to 50.0 mm in heavy showers are expected over central, western and north-western districts.
Residents and visitors should be prepared for strong runoff from higher elevations. Soil erosion is likely on bared or scarred land surfaces. Debris such as rocks, mud and foliage could end up on roads and property. Traffic delays are likely. Flooding at the foot of hillsides and coastal roads is possible.
