Due to the heavy rain forecast, the National Weather Service has issued a Flash Flood Watch through Wednesday morning. If you come to a flooded roadway, please turn around and find an alternate route.

With abundant clouds and rain, highs will gradually work into the low 80s. The clouds and rain will keep overnight lows mild and near 70°.

Alberto Moves Out Wednesday

The rains from Alberto should move out during the early morning hours on Wednesday. However, zonal upper level flow will set up across the region, leading to isolated and scattered thunderstorms in the afternoon. Highs will warm into the upper 80s.

Storms should wane during the overnight hours as lows drop back into the mid 60s.

Strong Storms Possible Thursday

A small disturbance will move through the region on Thursday. With dew point temperatures in the low 70s and afternoon highs warming to the upper 80s, a few strong to severe storms may form during the afternoon. The Storm Prediction Center has issued a “slight” risk of severe weather (Level 2 out of 5) for the region. This area will likely shift around in the later forecasts.
