Hazards and Tropical Weather

Scattered thunderstorms developing this afternoon will be capable of cloud-to-ground lightning and torrential rainfall. A few of the storms may become strong enough to produce brief, damaging winds. Localized flash flooding cannot be ruled out.

A localized risk of flash flooding will accompany any thunderstorms that develop over the next several days. This threat could gradually increase in scope as soils in more places become saturated from multiple rounds of heavy rain and creeks and stream levels rise in response to continued runoff.
