Good Thursday, folks. We have more in the way of showers and storms rumbling across the region today. This action will last through the weekend and early next week and could even ramp it up a notch or two.
Today’s forecast features scattered showers and storms lasting into the evening hours. Just like in previous days, any storm that’s out there can put down a lot of water in a short amount of time and the ground just can’t take much more, so watch for high water issues.

There is a very small break coming for the first half of Friday, but that closes quickly as we watch a big cluster of strong to severe storms develop to our northwest.

The stormy setup should hold into the first few days of next week, with the possibility for a few more strong to severe storms showing up.
Have a terrific Thursday and take care.
