With heavy rain on the way, today and tomorrow is a 4WARN WEATHER ALERT day.
We start with clouds and mild temperatures in the low to upper 50s.
We have been forecasting the rain all week and it is officially knocking on the door, widespread pushing west to east (9:48 AM)…
As a cold front pushed east through our state, it will bring rounds of heavy downpours and the potential for flooding with it.
I’m expecting 2-4″ of rainfall totals with local amounts exceeding that.
This leads to a FLASH FLOOD WATCH in effect noon today through noon on Saturday. Remember, DO NOT try and drive through water covered roads. As cliche as it may sound “turn around, don’t drown.”
Here’s the timing of the rain…
The heaviest of the rain pushes out on Saturday morning with lingering showers for the remainder of the day.
Much cooler air behind this cold front settles in on Christmas Eve (Sunday), leading to the possibility of snow flurries. I’ll have the latest timing on that plus your Christmas Day forecast coming up on News 4 at noon today. Hope you join me!
