Numerous Showers Pose Threat for Flash Flooding

Good afternoon to you! How was your weekend? We hope wonderful!

As of now, the National Weather Service has our county within a Flood Watch until the end of the day, with an additional one to two inches of rainfall possible in portions of our region of the state. Recently, the Storm Prediction Center has removed our county from the marginal risk for severe weather. However, the Weather Prediction Center has advanced our risk for excessive rainfall from slight to moderate. Our main threat will be numerous flash floods events with significant events possible. Many streams may flood, potentially affecting larger rivers. Thus, if you are out and about, be sure to take it slow on the roadways.

Moreover, that fresh breeze will stick around for the remainder of the day, with gusts reaching up to 30 miles per hour. In the late afternoon, temperatures will continue to warm to the 70 degree mark, then cool back off to the mid-30’s by nightfall. We aren’t expecting for these to reach below freezing, but that may occur Thursday night. Stay tuned for more on that in Thursday’s post.

That’s all for today! Have a great day!
