Good Wednesday, folks. Rounds of showers and thunderstorms are rolling across the state and will put down a ton of rain. This will lead to the increasing threat for high water issues through Thursday night.
For this reason, much of the region is under a Flood Watch:
Areas not in that watch need to also be on guard for some high water issues as the axis of heaviest rain continues to focus a little farther south. The new GFS is showing enough rain to cause some big issues:

In addition to the flood threat, a few of the storms may become strong or severe. The SPC has a Marginal Risk out for the western half of the state:
Near record highs will crash from west to east behind the front Thursday night. Readings are in the 20s by Friday morning with a period of light snow and flurries working through.
The next system targets the region late this weekend into early next week. The models go back and forth on how to handle this, but the late day GFS trended colder:
Here are your tracking tools for the day:
Make it a great day and take care.
