Potential for Heavy Rainfall Through the Weekend
The National Weather Service
(NWS) is predicting heavy rainfall for our area this weekend. Rainfall totals of one to four inches with higher amounts in isolated areas are possible. Heavy rainfall from slow-moving thunderstorms will be our biggest concern with this weather system, but a brief tornado, hail and damaging winds are possible. Prolonged periods of heavy rain could cause street flooding. This may affect driving conditions in some areas. Please use caution.
What you should do:
Residents are encouraged monitor local forecast, road conditions, and have multiple ways to get warnings.
- If you must travel never drive into high water and use extreme caution at underpasses and low-lying areas where water accumulates.
- Always remember to Turn Around, Don’t Drown! DO NOT DRIVE through high water and DO NOT DRIVE AROUND BARRICADES.
- Just two feet of water can sweep your vehicle away.
