A Flash Flood Watch continues through noon Saturday. Additional rain totals between now and then look to be 1-3″ with locally higher amounts. Backwater flooding will be an issue, so we will need to monitor local river levels in the coming days. Some spots are currently in minor flood stage. You can find the river forecast here.
Friday: Morning rains are expected. Some storms may be strong to severe. Activity is expected to wind down for a bit before increasing late this afternoon/evening and into the late night hours. We could see an additional 1-3″. There is a Marginal Risk (1 of 5) for severe weather for damaging wind and hail and then a Moderate Risk (3 of 4) for excessive rainfall/flooding.
Saturday: Passing rain during the morning, but the rest of the day should be mostly dry, except for some evening and late night showers and storms. Either way, it won’t be a total washout. There should plenty of dry time. Rains should fade by Sunday morning.
How to Prepare: Be sure you have multiple ways to receive weather alerts. Brush up on your severe weather safety plan – know where your safe place is and be sure it is ready for you, your family, and your pets. Also, please avoid all flooded areas! We will have to monitor river levels, as well.
