Heavy rain into the weekend

Good Friday to one and all. We continue to deal with tropical moisture streaming into the region, bringing more heavy rains and strong storms. The heavy rain threat increases this weekend as the remnants of Gordon work into the Ohio Valley.

Storms over the past few days have dumped more than 2″ of rain in several areas and we should see more of the same today. The boomers are feeding on the tropical air and will also spit out a ton of lightning. The lightning may cause issues for some of the high school football games.

Here is your Friday edition of the storm tracking toys:

As we roll into the weekend, what’s left of Gordon works into the Ohio Valley and will drag a cold front across the state. Heavy rain producing showers and storms are a good bet through Sunday and even into Monday. The WPC seems to have a good handle with the rainfall numbers showing up during this time…

The greatest threat for flooding across the northern half of the state, but the local flash flood threat is area-wide.

This system will also tug down cooler air with a nice run of highs in the 70s this weekend into early next week. Unfortunately, additional rounds of showers and storms will carry us into next week.

From there, it’s all about what happens with Hurricane Florence:

This system will roll toward the east coast and may very well impact the coast, but that’s certainly a long way from being a sure thing. The European Model continues to advertise the biggest hit:

Have a fantastic Friday and take care.
