Heavy Rain and Strong Storms

Good Thursday to one and all. We have another very soggy pattern taking control of the weather through the upcoming weekend. Some of the storms may be strong and put down too much rain, leading to some additional high water issues.

The Storm Prediction Center has a low risk for severe storms on top of us today. Here’s a look at the latest Severe Weather Outlook…

The setup may produce some local wind damage with the stronger storms going up, so we will be on guard for that.

This is in response to a system moving in and slowing down on top of our region. Additional rounds of showers and storms will then carry us through Friday and into Saturday, putting down very heavy rainfall. These rains will likely cause, at least, local high water issues.

Scattered storms will be around on Sunday, but may not be as widespread as the next few days. Showers and storms then increase Monday into Tuesday ahead of a fall cold front…

Heavy rain and a few strong storms are likely during this time. Behind that front comes a taste of early Fall with temps going well below normal…

Highs may hang into the 70s for highs, with lower humidity levels. Overnight lows can make a run at 50 in a few spots.

I leave you with your Thursday storm tracking toys…
