MM’s Wx Vlog

Wx Summary

A flash flood watch is in effect through this evening. Be careful if you’re around waterways today and NEVER drive across flooded roadways, especially if the water is moving. Most flood deaths occur in vehicles.

Scattered showers and storms will be in the area throughout the day. By this evening, drier air should work into the area and reduce rain chances significantly tonight. We then begin a roller coaster of rain chances that vary every other day. On Tuesday, we’ll see another chance for showers and storms, though models have trended a bit drier with Tuesday. On Wednesday, rain chances tick right back up before falling off again a bit for Thursday. Another system moves in for Friday, bringing another good chance for showres and thunderstorms.
