More Heavy Rain Expected Tuesday, Flash Flooding Possible


Severe thunderstorms are possible on Tuesday afternoon and evening. Heavy rain is the main concern since it would only take 1″ of rain in some spots for flash flooding to develop once again. Rivers are running high and the ground is well saturated. Some thunderstorms Tuesday may be slow-moving which would mean rain would be quick to accumulate. Strong wind gusts will also be a concern Tuesday.

Another round of thunderstorms is expected on Wednesday where flooding will once again be a concern. A welcome break from the rain is expected on Thursday but storms will once again be possible on Friday. Friday will also be a notably hot and humid day with heat index, (or ‘feels like’) temperatures reaching the mid-90s.
