Tracking heavy rain
FLOOD WATCH: We’ll get 1-3″ of rain, tonight. Expect the widespread scattered showers to be heavy at times. While our bigger creeks and streams can handle 1-3″ of rain, we will see some flash flooding in low spots with poor water drainage or around the small streams. We’ll particularly see this in spots that get heavy rain over a short period of time or in spots that continually get heavy rain. As a result, the National Weather Service has issued a Flood Watch. It stays in effect until Friday morning.
TRACKING RAIN: After widespread scattered showers Thursday morning, we get drier throughout the day. In fact, we’ll see only a few showers in the afternoon. On Friday, we’ll have just a few showers and spend most of the day dry. Expect highs in the upper 60s Thursday and Friday.
SUNNIER SKIES: On Saturday, we’ll see some breaks of sun. The sun helps our temperature climb to 72 by the afternoon. While we’ll get a few hit-or-miss showers, expect to have dry weather for most of the day. On Sunday, we get even sunnier, and get highs in the mid 70s, as a result. While a spot or two will get a quick shower, most of us stay dry all day.
SEASONAL SEVENTIES: Next week, an area of high pressure drops down from the north to bring us sunny skies. Besides the sunny skies, we’ll have highs in the low to mid 70s.
