Tracking heavy rain and a flood threat

Good Wednesday, everyone. Our Fourth of July holiday period has begun with a scattering of showers and thunderstorms. This will increase over the next few days, and that will increase the potential for flooding. That’s never good news, especially during a big holiday.

The action we have today will continue to be scattered. Any storm could be strong and put down a ton of rain in a short time. The flow later tonight into the Fourth will come directly from the Gulf of Mexico:

Looking for a silver lining? Highs will generally be in the 70s. Yes, I’m grasping at straws.

Today’s storm tracking tools:

Have a great day and take care.
