…WIDESPREAD SHOWERS AND A FEW THUNDERSTORMS EXPECTED TODAY…

AFTER MULTIPLE DAYS OF WIDESPREAD THUNDERSTORMS PRODUCING HEAVY

RAIN…FLOODING…STRONG OUTFLOW WINDS AND HAIL…TODAY IS SHAPING

UP TO BE A DAY WITH MORE WIDESPREAD SHOWERS OF LIGHT TO MODERATE

RAIN AND ONLY ISOLATED THUNDERSTORMS. CLOUD COVER THIS MORNING

AND COOLER TEMPERATURES THROUGH THE DAY SHOULD LIMIT THE AMOUNT OF

THUNDERSTORMS THE AREA RECEIVES. HOWEVER…THERE WILL STILL BE

ENOUGH INSTABILITY FOR EVEN ISOLATED STORMS TO BECOME STRONG FOR A

SHORT PERIOD OF TIME. ANY STRONG STORMS HAVE THE POTENTIAL TO

PRODUCE HAIL AND GUSTY WINDS.

STORMS THAT DO DEVELOP TODAY WILL BE SLOW MOVING. THIS MEANS THAT

BRIEF MODERATE TO HEAVY RAIN IS POSSIBLE. WHILE THE RISK OF FLOODING

IS FAR LESS TODAY THAN PREVIOUS DAYS…IT IS NOT OUT OF THE

QUESTION FOR BRIEF LOCALLY HEAVY RAIN TO PRODUCE MINOR FLOODING

IN AREAS THAT HAVE RECEIVED SIGNIFICANT AMOUNTS OF RAIN IN THE

PAST FEW DAYS. THE MOST LIKELY AREAS FOR FLOODING TODAY WOULD BE

LOW LYING AND POOR DRAINAGE AREAS ALONG WITH LOCATIONS NEAR STEEP

TERRAIN AND BURN SCARS FROM WILDFIRES THAT RECEIVED RAIN DURING

THE PAST FEW DAYS.
