More Wet Weather

Flash Flooding For Some
A band of heavy rain that washed out a few area bridges has shifted well south of the region.   However, with the ground saturated and unable to hold any additional rain, the risk of flooding will remain at a high level for the next several days.    Another round of showers with embedded heavy downpours and thunderstorms will drift in from the northeast tonight before diminishing.   Any slow-moving storm can be accompanied by up to an inch of rain.

A relatively active time frame will continue for the foreseeable future as additional tropical moisture arrives from the Gulf of Mexico.    The coverage to showers and thunderstorms may very well be less come Friday and Saturday.   However, a broad area of low pressure that we’ve been watching for over a week will develop over the gulf.   Depending on where it forms will be the ultimate deciding factor as to where it can make landfall.   For now, let’s not concentrate on that, even though it may very well become the first tropical depression of the season this weekend.   Let’s concentrate on the fact that developing storm will throw additional bands of rain our way, leading to more flooding woes later this holiday weekend, and throughout a good part of next week.   Stay tuned, and stay safe.
