6/6 – Rob Knight’s Friday-Eve “FLASH FLOOD WATCH” Forecast
A weak stationary/warm front has developed to our south…leading to steady rainfall in certain areas. Some heavier rain rates could occur with the line of showers/t-storms as they move through today. For this reason, the flood watch will be left in place for now but rain totals will be lowered a bit and WPC has taken the entire area down from Moderate risk to slight for excessive rainfall. The entire area will get a much needed dry window starting this evening through the overnight hours. Then another round of showers/t-storms Friday, but at the moment, it looks as if we should be able to benefit from the lack of rainfall overnight as to handle the
rainfall for Friday. Winds will rise today as the surface low-pressure and line of showers/t-storms moves east. So we will see a quite breezy day today as winds rise to around 15-20mph with gusts as high as 30mph for a few locations possible.
As if this weren’t enough. We will also see a chance for an isolated severe thunderstorm today. All modes will be possible.
