A rainy day is underway across the region for today. This means that flooding concerns rise today and tomorrow. A cold front will slowly move through the region, making for abundant rain throughout the day. Temperatures are currently hovering just a touch under 60°. We should warm a bit into the mid 60s by this afternoon. The HRRR displays just how widespread the rain will be.
Due to the abundance of rain expected today, a slight risk of flash flooding has been issued. Think of this as a level 2 out of 4 threat. If you come to a flooded roadway, don’t drive through it.
Rain will continue overnight, though it should decrease in intensity. A Flood Watch will go into effect this evening and into Thursday evening as rain continues to fall on saturated soil.
Lows will drop back into the upper 50s once again.
