Tracking another heavy rain threat

Good Friday, everyone. We are ending the week with additional rounds of showers and storms moving across the area. Just like in the previous days, these storms will put down very heavy rains that can lead to local high water issues.

Today’s storms may have a little extra to work with as low pressure moves in from the southwest. That spin in the atmosphere will combine with a deep inflow of moisture from the south to give us a better shot at heavy rain.

Given how much water has fallen in recent days, we will need to be on heightened alert for the potential of flash flooding.

Remember, those numbers really don’t take into consideration totals you can get from individual thunderstorms.

Make it a fantastic Friday and take care.
