The rain will grow heavier as we enter the evening hours due to a rocking and roaring low pressure system heading our way from the Gulf of Mexico.

Sunday Severe Storm Threat

Our severe threat will begin around midnight with the greatest concerns being damaging wind and flash flooding from the heavy rain totaling 1-3 inches by tomorrow afternoon.
