Meteorologist Mark’s 5-Day Wx Concerns
Many of us have already seen around an inch of rain, with 1-2 inches of rain coming for Sunday. Some localized locations may even pick up an inch for than than just for Sunday. The heaviest rain of this system will fall tomorrow. Be aware of that if you live in a flood-prone area and remember to never drive across flooded roadways.
Meteorologist Mark’s Wx Discussion
There are some indications that we could see a strong storm or two across the plateau either today or Sunday. It’s really not an impressive threat at all, so I didn’t even mention it. I want the emphasis to stay on the heavy rain threat, especially for folks who may live in areas prone to flooding. And, as always, be careful if you’re out driving and get caught in a heavier downpour. It’s hard to see and you should never ever cross a flooded roadway.
