* Through this evening.

Thunderstorms producing heavy rain will move through southwest

County... the Pony and Bear Trap fires in Madison County... and
the millie fire in Gallatin County.

Those living near burn scars should have a plan of action ready

A Flash Flood Watch means that conditions may develop that lead
to flash flooding. Flash flooding is a very dangerous situation.
