The forecast includes widespread showers and isolated thunderstorms, with the potential for moderate to heavy rainfall capable of causing flooding in urban and low-lying areas. Residents are advised to exercise caution, especially when driving, and to stay alert for updates as weather conditions may warrant a change from a flood watch to a flood warning if flooding occurs.
