Flash Flood Watch continues...expect heavy rainfall today

FLASH FLOOD WATCH is in effect from now until 6PM Saturday. Widespread rainfall totals could be between 3-5 inches, isolated areas getting more than that. The Weather Prediction Center has upgraded our ares to be in the moderate risk for excessive rainfall, meaning areas could see up to 8 inches. If heavy rainfall persists, a few inches could be picked up very easily. This could cause areas to flood and ponding on the roads. Remember....turn around, don't drown.

Today will have scattered rain chances becoming more widespread in the afternoon and evening hours. You will need the umbrella all day long. If you aren't seeing rain, expect cloudy conditions. Rain could be heavy at times which could reduce visibility on the roadways, so be careful. Highs today in the low 50s, so you will also need the jacket.

Upper 40s is all we go on Saturday, due to continuing rain chances in the forecast. Widespread rain is what you will be waking up to, becoming more scattered throughout the day. Rain chances look to continue into the evening on Saturday, make sure to have indoor activities planned.

Looks like we dry out Sunday with cloudy conditions and highs in the mid 40s. Low to mid 50s for Monday and Tuesday with lots of sunshine. More clouds for Wednesday with the chance of seeing a shower or two. Rain chances increased Thursday with highs in the low 60s.

Have a good day!
