DD SEVERE STORM THREAT3

Not something to mess with! Please do not attempt to drive or walk through water covered roads. The eye cannot see the depth of water on the road and it only takes 1-2 feet of water to carry most vehicles away. Only six inches can sweep you off your feet!

Showers and thunderstorms have diminished in number and have backed off in intensity. A few heavy downpours remain, indicated by the RED on the radar…all on an east southeasterly path…

I have a 30% for spotty showers and thunderstorms mainly during the afternoon to early evening. A very summer-like typical pattern for this time of year…DD RPM 4KM EVENING2DD RPM 4KM EVENING4DD RPM 4KM EVENING9
