Tuesday Morning: Heavy rain, severe threat Tuesday and Wednesday

Weather

A Flash Flood Watch is in effect from 12 PM Tuesday through 12 PM Thursday. Rain totals will be around 3-5″ with locally higher amounts over 5″.

Today & Tonight: Numerous to widespread showers and storms are expected. Heavy rain could lead to some flash flooding issues. Rain totals on Tuesday could be 2-3″ with locally higher amounts over 3″. Remember, if heavy pockets develop, rain totals could be double or even triple those projected amounts. There is a Slight Risk (threat level 2 of 5) for severe weather. Main concern will be damaging wind and large hail, but a few tornadoes cannot be ruled out. Most of the rain will come to an end this evening, but could pick back up overnight and into Wednesday morning.

Wednesday: More showers and storms are expected as a cold front finally passes through the area. Best chance for rain looks to be during the morning and early afternoon. Heavy rain and a few strong to severe storms will be possible. There is a Marginal Risk (threat level 1 of 5) for severe weather. Damaging wind and a tornado or two will be the main concerns, but hail will also be possible. Rain totals through Thursday morning are expected to be around 2-4″ with locally higher amounts. Remember, if we see heavy pockets, you could double or even triple those projected amounts. Rain chance is around 80%. High near 75.

Thursday: Forecast confidence is still a bit low beyond Wednesday, but for now…it looks like the front will be to our south, but it will stall out near the coast which will lead to some more rain chances – mainly during the morning and early afternoon hours. Highs in the lower 70s. Rain chance is around 60%. Overnight low near 55.

Friday & Weekend: Leaving rain chances elevated for now, but not expecting a total washout. For now, rain chances look to be around 40-50% on Friday and Saturday. Highs will be in the upper 60s to lower 70s. Morning temperatures in the 50s. Rain totals through Sunday morning may be 3-6″ with locally higher amounts. Rain chance will be much lower on Sunday and Monday.
