Periods of rain and thunder overnight with localized flooding possible

Once again the rain showers will speckle the region with a few thunderstorms possible and localized flooding. The saturated region will be hit once again with off and on rain showers that will lead to low lying areas and small creeks and streams being overrun. The story will be the same as we have seen over the past few days, with periods of heavy rain at times, followed by grey skies, then more rain once again. The amount of rain will vary, but an additional one inch or more of rain will not be out of the question. If you see a roadway that has been flooded, do not drive through it, turn around and find an alternate route.

The high temperature Saturday was 77 degrees with pockets of heavy rain at times throughout the area. This will continue overnight so there is a good chance that some roads and streams may be overrun. Be extra careful when driving at night as rain reduces your visibility.

Our rainy pattern continues on Sunday, with little change in the pattern. Another round of off and on rain will persist, leading to localized flooding concerns throughout the region. Highs again in the upper seventies.

Monday will see scattered showers and a little bit warmer weather, highs in the low eighties. Tuesday looks a little drier, but still a few showers are possible. The rest of the work week will be similar to this past week, with off and on rain and a concern for localized flooding each day.
