  are not quite as high, flow there is actually a little more
  supportive of training rainfall, which may make up for the
  decreased intensity. Rainfall rates of 1 to 3 inches per hour
  with locally higher amounts will be possible with the stronger
  activity or where any training sets up.

* The watch area may need to be reconfigured during the day as
  it becomes a little more clear as to what locations are at
  most risk for flooding.
