Tuesday Morning: More rounds of heavy rain and strong storms; Much nicer by the weekend

Weather

A Flash Flood Watch is in effect now through 1 PM Wednesday. Additional rain totals of 2-4″ with locally higher amounts will be possible. Click here for the Interactive Radar.

Today: Rain coverage is expected to increase throughout the day thanks to the stalled boundary and an upper-level disturbance. Heavy rain/flash flooding will be our main concern, but there may be a few strong to severe storms. There is currently a Marginal Risk (threat level 1 of 5) for severe weather for our area. Damaging wind and hail would be the main concern if storms turn severe, but a tornado cannot be ruled out.

Tonight: Make sure you have multiple ways to get warnings tonight. We are expecting rounds of heavy rain and possibly a strong to severe storm. Rain chance overnight is around 70-80%. Overnight temperature near 68°F.

Wednesday: More rain is expected, but more so during the morning and early afternoon. Organized severe weather threat is low, but not zero. Heavy rain and flash flooding continue to the be the main concern. Rain chance is around 70-80%. High near 77°F. Overnight temperature near 61°F.

Thursday: We will start to dry out, but a few showers or storms will be possible. Rain chance is around 30% for now. Drier air will begin to move in. High near 77°F. Overnight temperature is 58°F.

Friday & Weekend: We look mostly dry and warm with highs in the low and mid 80s. A slight chance for a shower Sunday, but overall, the weekend looks quite nice!
