Storms Need To Be Watched Carefully Tonight

Some of the latest numbers show our atmosphere quickly becoming more unstable. Here is what I have for now as of mid-afternoon.

Dewpoints of 60 or above are having a tough time moving north which could limit our severe weather here at home, otherwise or atmosphere is a loaded gun. We could still have isolated strong storms producing wind gusts of 50 mph and quarter size hail. The main threat will arrive between 9 p.m. and 12 a.m. I will keep you posted.

I was reading the extended forecast and that dreaded "f" word popped up (flooding). Is there any early estimate of rainfall that may come with the storms? Last time I checked the NWS website - it looked like 2-3 inches overall - which may not be very good for those of us that live on the river.

Sad thing is, the river is finally under flood stage, too.

Thanks for keeping us updated. I am curious about total rainfall accumulation and any predictions of flooding.
