Showers and thunderstorms are expected to develop around midday and continue through the afternoon and evening across the region. Heavy rain is possible with one to two inches falling. Locally heavier amounts of up to three inches are possible. These rainfall totals may occur in a short amount of time, and could lead to flash flooding.
The risk of flash flooding is highest in urbanized and low-lying areas. There could be rapid rises along small creeks and streams. Residents are encouraged to monitor the weather today, especially those who live in areas prone to flooding. Residents should also be prepared to take action if a flash flood warning is issued later today.
