While we’re seeing a break from the rain for now, a return to rain is expected this evening and overnight. Mostly cloudy skies expected today as we warm into the mid 50s. Rain will accompany warming temperatures overnight. A few rumbles of thunder will also be possible. The Weather Prediction Center has outlined the region in a “moderate” risk of flash flooding. Think of this as a level 3 out of 4 threat.
More rain is expected on Friday as a warm front stalls close to the region. Temperatures will warm into the mid 60s, but a firehose of rain is expected. A “slight” risk of flash flooding has been issued, which is a level 2 out of 4 threat.
More rain is expected Saturday. Some severe storms may be possible as well as highs top out in the low 70s. A cold front will push through the region during the evening hours. This will trigger a line of strong to severe storms to the west and they will likely move in our direction. Damaging wind and isolated tornadoes are the main threats. A “slight” risk of severe weather has been issued for the region by the Storm Prediction Center. Think of this as a level 2 out of 5 threat. This may be adjusted later.
In addition to severe weather, flooding will once again be a concern Saturday and Saturday night. The Weather Prediction Center has placed the region in a “moderate” risk of flash flooding, a 3 out of 4 threat.
That should wrap up this forecast. Thanks for stopping by and I hope you have a wonderful day!
