...THE URBAN AND SMALL STREAM FLOOD ADVISORY REMAINS IN EFFECT UNTIL
945 PM EDT FOR JEFFERSON AND LEWIS COUNTIES...

AT 807 PM EDT THE LINE OF HEAVY THUNDERSTORMS HAS NOW EXITED TO THE 
EAST OF THE NORTH COUNTRY. HOWEVER CONTINUED RUNOFF FROM THESE 
RECENT STORMS WILL CONTINUE TO ALLOW SMALL STREAMS AND CREEKS TO 
RISE THROUGH THE LATE EVENING. ALSO POOR DRAINAGE FLOODING REMAINS 
POSSIBLE ACROSS THE AREA THIS EVENING. 

PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS...

EXCESSIVE RUNOFF FROM HEAVY RAINFALL WILL CAUSE ELEVATED LEVELS ON
SMALL CREEKS AND STREAMS...AND PONDING OF WATER ON COUNTRY ROADS AND
FARMLAND ALONG THE BANKS OF CREEKS AND STREAMS.

DO NOT DRIVE YOUR VEHICLE INTO AREAS WHERE THE WATER COVERS THE
ROADWAY. THE WATER DEPTH MAY BE TOO GREAT TO ALLOW YOUR CAR TO CROSS
SAFELY. MOVE TO HIGHER GROUND.
