One, to localized amounts in excess of three inches, of rainfall have already occurred across locations southeast of Fairview, with the heaviest amounts generally in the Ferndale area, with lesser amounts down to one inch spreading northeastward to just west of Brentwood. Additional rainfall amounts of one half to around one inch will be possible across this area through the remainder of the evening hours. Thus, flash flooding is expected to begin shortly.
