Showers and storms continue, with locally heavy rain possible

Much like yesterday we'll be tracking wandering showers and storms. There's a lot of moisture overhead, so hopefully these storms keep moving to avoid a widespread risk of spot flooding.

Good Tuesday morning everyone!

This blog post may be relatively short for now as I'm trying to fit this one in between power outages (yes, it's been pretty choppy since yesterday evening).

A front approaches today to kick out all the languishing showers and storms that have spotted up since Sunday afternoon. Not everyone has been visited by a strong one, but the ones who have got stuck in some notable flash flooding because of their slow movement.

The good news about a front like this, even if it is a relatively modest one, is that it will squeegee out the remaining moisture over-head such that when we get to the other side we have a better shot at staying dry for a while. Of course, a consequence of that is another risk of downpours and spot flooding where ever these storms end up materializing.

Generally the most targeted areas will be in the southern half of our area, but I would still inch this up toward I-64 a little bit more until that front finally pulls through. Note that in some of these thunderstorms, 1 or 2 inches of rain are not out of the question. As would always be the case, never attempt to drive across flooded roadways-- often conditions can improve just as quickly as they went downhill after a storm passes by. Just keep an eye on the tracking maps below (and/or your WSAZ Mobile Web App), and before you know it we'll be back into some drier skies :-)
