Flood risk continues for Thursday

Remaining Ad Time Ad - 00:00

No surprises here... rain showers still continue into our day. Flooding stays as a main concern.

A Flash Flood Watch is issued for Tazewell, Bland, Wythe and Giles counties until 8PM Thursday.

A Flood Warning is issued for the New River at Glen Lyn until 11AM Saturday.

A Flood Warning is issued for the New River at Allisonia until 8AM Saturday.

A Flood Advisory is issued for Tazewell, Bland, Wythe, Mercer, Monroe and Giles counties until 10:15AM Thursday.

Basically the weather is a repeat of Wednesday's. Only thing that is changing is an increase in temperatures. Highs will hover in the 50s and lower 60s for most. Clouds will still play an active role along with gusty winds. Winds gusts will be around 25-30MPH coming from the east.

Tonight, temperatures won't drop too much from our highs today. Lows will be in the 50s. Some of the viewing area will actually witness a mostly dry night tonight. Areas along and east of I-77 have the best chances to continue to see showers overnight. Winds will also calm down tonight.

Throughout our Friday, winds will change direction and come out of the west. The stalled low pressure system will finally head off towards the east coast. We still have a chance for showers throughout our Friday, but most will notice a bit of a drier trend to start the day. Also temperatures will be considerably warmer with highs reaching the 70s. Showers will build back in during the afternoon. A bit of sun will try to squeeze in tomorrow afternoon which could allow for an isolated storm or two to pop in during the afternoon and evening. If any storms develop, shouldn't expect anything severe but we can't completely rule out the chances for some small hail and stronger winds at times.

Memorial Day weekend still calls for a chance for showers. The good news is that showers won't be all day as they will come and go. Highs will be in the 70s and 80s
