As soaking rains continue, flooding concerns will rise by late week

Remaining Ad Time Ad - 00:00

A trough of low pressure at the upper levels of the atmosphere will keep us unsettled through the remainder of the week. A series of disturbances caught in the southwesterly wind flow over our area will continue to bring us rounds of rain through Wednesday and Thursday.

Showers will continue on and off overnight, with heavier downpours possible at times through early Wednesday morning. Clouds and fog will stick with us into midweek as well, but temps will remain mild for this time of year, with lows tonight in the upper 40s/low 50s. and highs tomorrow again in the upper 50s/low 60s. Rain will continue to be on and off Wednesday, with more heavier downpours possible into late Wednesday night-early Thursday.

By Wednesday evening, flooding will become a bigger concern, as the soil is already saturated. From Tuesday night through early Thursday, our area could see anywhere from 1.50" to 2.50"+ of rain, which could cause high water issues to emerge into late week. It will be windy on occasion in the coming days as well, and although no severe t-storms are expected, rumbles of thunder might be heard on occasion. Gustier winds in general (not associated with t-storms) could still cause downed trees/power outages with the wet soil.

Scattered rain/snow showers will then be on tap for the end of the week and into this coming weekend as temperatures drop back to seasonable normals, in the upper 30s/low 40s, and lows fall into the upper 20s/low 30s. An accumulating wintry mix could be possible at times through this weekend, although it is still too early for specifics. Stay tuned, this is a very active weather week!
