and will bring a period of moderate to heavy rainfall to the
region. Behind the front, scattered showers and isolated
thunderstorms will continue through Tuesday evening. Rainfall
rates in excess of one half to an inch per hour are possible

create flash flooding across the area. Especially vulnerable will

and debris flows will be possible.
