Excessive amounts of rain are in the forecast for throughout the weekend. The National Weather Service has issued a Flash Flood Watch for our area from Friday evening until Sunday evening. Rain totals are expected to be between 1 and 4 inches, with isolated locations possibly receiving totals in excess of 6". Rain looks to begin late Friday evening into early Saturday morning and lingering all day Saturday. While occasional breaks in the rain may happen in your backyard, there will still be rain around swooping in later.
The bulk of precipitation will occur late Saturday night into Sunday morning. Rainfall amounts from Friday night and Saturday will impact our flooding risk, with more rain then increasing the likelihood for Sunday.
If there are any firework shows planned for the weekend, they may have to be recheduled or canceled. Luckily, Independence Day itself looks to be more dry than wet, with lingering rain showers possible in the morning hours. Precip chances diminish throughout the day, leaving conditions for Monday night nice for fireworks! Planning to sit in the grass? Bring some lawn chairs or blankets as the ground may still be wet!
