A Flash Flood Watch has been issued for our northern counties until midnight. The NWS warns of heavy showers could produce very heavy rainfall and up to 3-4" of rain over the next several hours.
The flow of rain will decrease later this evening but we could see an occasional downpour with isolated storm cells. We are not anticipating severe storms, however, flash flooding is a severe weather element and is to be taken seriously. Never drive through waters of unknown depth.
We remain on the cool side of an area of low pressure on Friday. This will keep temperatures in the upper 70s. Friday morning should be dry with only isolated shower chances but as the front nears, the afternoon will bring rain and the chance of isolated strong to severe storms. The main threat with any storm will be damaging wind gusts and small hail. Minor flooding is also possible now that we've already had plentiful rain in some areas.
By the end of the weekend you'll notice a warming into the lower to mid 80s. We have chances for rain Saturday and Sunday. But dry out and warm up to seasonal levels as we start the new week.
Shower chances decrease this evening
