Flood Warning in Effect

A Flood Warning is in effect for Marshall County until 3:30 PM this afternoon. Rounds of heavy rain last night led to rainfall amounts over 2.5″ across the county. More rain is expected throughout the day today which will continue to lead to rising waters in area creeks and rivers. Highs will top out in the low 60s. Showers and storms continue overnight as lows drop into the upper 50s. This was the view of HWY 1492 yesterday:

Severe weather is possible on Saturday. A cold front will work into the region during the evening hours. This will prompt a line of strong to severe storms to move through the area. Damaging wind and isolated tornadoes are the main threats. The Storm Prediction Center has placed the region in an “enhanced” risk of severe weather. Think of this as a level 3 out of 5 threat.

Think of this as a level 3 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.
