Today: Yesterday the rain was quite spotty, however, I expect that trend to end today. Expect scattered to numerous showers and thunderstorms today. Flooding shouldn’t be a huge concern today, but isolated areas that receive the heaviest downpours could have some issues. Some parts of our area are under a MARGINAL RISK (¼) for flash flooding. Highs will reach about 90 degrees around noon or 1pm before cloud cover and storm coverage increases across the area into the afternoon and evening. Overnight lows will dip into the mid-70s again, with partly cloudy to mostly clear skies.
Wednesday-Thursday: After all of the rain expected today, soils will be very moist an unable to absorb heavy amounts of rainfall in short periods of time. This, however, is exactly what could happen tomorrow. Numerous to widespread showers and thunderstorms are expected in the afternoon and evening. Some of the rain could come down in quick spurts, leading to flash flood concerns. Because of this, there is a SLIGHT RISK (2/4) for flash flooding tomorrow. Highs will be limited to the upper-80s on Wednesday due to the increase in rain coverage. If you thought Wednesday was wet or if it doesn’t end up being as wet as forecasted, Thursday will still be a worry for flooding. The heavy rain is expected on Thursday, which will also lead to a MARGINAL RISK (1/4) for flash flooding. Highs are only expected to reach the mid-80s on Thursday.
Friday: The last day of your work week won’t be as wet as Wednesday and Thursday, but could still see scattered to numerous showers and thunderstorms.
Saturday-Monday: Over the weekend and to start next week, daily storms are still expected. However, coverage begins to thin out. Scattered rain is possible on Saturday with only isolated storms expected by Monday. This leads to warmer temperatures back in the low-90s starting Saturday.
Tracking the Tropics: There is a new tropical wave in the Atlantic that has a 40% chance of developing into a tropical depression or storms in the next 5 days. It is still very far out in the Atlantic, so nothing to be concerned with for now.
