FLOOD WARNING: is in effect until 11:45PM for Franklin County. Local law enforcement reported on-going flooding due to very heavy rain in southern and western Franklin County. Up to 3 inches of rain have fallen…with much of the warning area now over 2 inches of rain today. Know your relation to small creeks and streams and seek higher ground immediately!!!!
FLASH FLOOD WATCH: is in effect until midnight for much of the rest of the area.
THIS EVENING: Chance for showers and maybe a rumble of thunder. Our western counties have the best chance for seeing showers and thunderstorms some of which may be strong to severe. Temps will fall from the mid 70s to the upper 60s.
MORNING: We’ll start off again with areas of fog along with drizzle and a few showers. Mornings lows will range from the mid to upper 60s.
TOMORROW: A cold front arrives bringing another round of showers and thunderstorms. Highs will reach close to 80 degrees. The front will exit the area by evening allowing high pressure to take over and bring in drier air in time for the weekend. Winds will be westerly until the front moves through at which time they will shift to the northwest.
OUTLOOK: Following the front will be a much drier air mass in time for the weekend. Clouds will decrease overnight Friday into Saturday as high pressure builds in with northwesterly winds reinforcing the drier air into the region. Morning lows will dip to the 50s but we’ll rebound nicely under plenty of sunshine to the upper 70s to near 80. Father’s Day is looking almost perfect for dads. It will be mostly sunny and comfortable. Highs will warm to the low to mid 80s.
STORMY, HUMID PATTERN RETURNS: Next threat for showers and storms returns late Monday and continues through Thursday. Temperatures will be warm and well into the 80s. Combine the heat with the growing humidity and it will once again feel pretty sticky around the area for a few days.
