Forecasters say rainfall amounts could be between 2 to 4 inches with locally higher amounts in the heaviest rain.
There is a possibility for widespread flooding resulting from small streams and creeks flowing out of their banks and flooding from main stem rivers.
People are reminded to never attempt to drive through high water.
