…Heavy Rainfall and Additional Flooding Possible This Week…

Rainfall Monday through Thursday is expected to be 2 to 3 inches with locally higher amounts possible. The heaviest rain will fall on Monday and Wednesday as two strong low pressure systems move through the area. Some rivers in the area are already above flood stage. Heavy rainfall this week could lead to renewed rises on rivers with additional and more substantial flooding possible.

Ground conditions are quite wet across much of the area so heavy rain could also lead to flooding of low lying areas. People in the area, especially those who live or frequently travel near rivers or other flood prone areas, should monitor the latest forecasts this week for possible flood watches and warnings from the National Weather Service.
