Today's Forecast

  • 80°
  • 64°

First Alert Tuesday and Wednesday

Flash Flood WATCH in effect until Thursday 8:00AM

A cold front to our west has stalled and along this front will be a series of Low pressure events that will give us periods of showers and thunderstorms tonight through Wednesday night.  This is very moist and humid air and anything (such as these disturbances) that form have the potential to produce very heavy rain.   The ground is now very wet therefore any more rain will start to be cause of concern for possible flooding. 

The next disturbance will be in overnight or near daybreak.  Look for periods of rain and thunderstorms through midday and then a smaller round by late tomorrow afternoon and evening.  A third round will move in just ahead of the cold front on Wednesday (the front will finally pick up speed and move through and out)

Tonight:  Scattered showers  with more widespread showers and thunderstorms developing overnight, lows in the lower to middle 60s.  Rain chance 70%

Tuesday: Periods of showers and thunderstorms (some could be strong with gusty winds and heavy rain) highs near 80°  Rain chance 70%

Tuesday night:  Mostly cloudy with scattered showers and a few thunderstorms, lows middle 60s.  Rain chance 70%

Wednesday:  Mostly cloudy with showers and thunderstorms midday through early evening,  some will contain heavy rain and gusty winds.  Highs near 80°  Rain chance 70%
