Friday Morning: Heavy rain and severe threat will continue; Drier pattern Sunday

Weather

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.

Today & Tonight: 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. High temperatures in the upper 60s to lower 70s. Overnight temperature near 61.

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. Highs will be in the lower 70s. Overnight temperature will be near 53.

Sunday: After a few early morning showers, we will finally start to dry out, but we’ll still hang onto clouds a good bit. High near 70. Overnight temperature near 49.

Next Week: Mostly dry and quiet. Very pleasant with highs in the low and mid 70s and overnight temperatures in the 40s and 50s.
