WEATHER ALERT

* Severe Weather/Flooding Expected Tonight/Tomorrow * Threat Time: Monday 7:00 PM - Tuesday 7:00 PM

The 24 hour period between this evening and tomorrow evening will be active. Initially, a band of showers/storms will move into the area this evening. All severe weather hazards (winds, hail, and perhaps a tornado) are all in the cards, though gusty winds are the primary concern. As we progress through the overnight, rain and storms will become widespread, transitioning to a flooding risk. During the pre-dawn tomorrow, a band of heavy rain will likely lift through the area. This band of rain can drop a couple inches of rain in a short period of time. The band of rain should start to lift north around daybreak, but periods of light to moderate rain are expected to continue through much of the day. Between tonight and tomorrow, a general 2.50 - 5.00" of rain is expected with localized swaths of 6"+ possible where the heaviest band of rain sets up. Flooding won't be as severe as it was with Hurricane Ida earlier this year, though it will still be significant with all varieties of flooding on the table.
