(5.19.2015) Good Tuesday morning! We had a wild day yesterday with regards to rainfall. Warren County received a deluge of rain with flash flooding conditions. Reports included road closures due to flooding, stranded motorist rescues by the local fire department, and rescues from homes with waist deep water. Radar estimates are that up to 11" of rain fell over a course of several hours.
Fortunately, today will be much less eventful with regards to the weather. The biggest concerns for the morning are the dense fog that will be around until about 9 AM. It's best to leave some extra time for your morning drive in case you run into any slow downs. As always, use your low beams in fog- your brights will only make the fog harder to see through. Once fog lifts we'll have partly cloudy skies and warm temperatures in the mid 80s. In the afternoon hours there's the possibility for some passing rain and thunderstorms. This is mostly for areas south of I-20 and mainly along the Highway 84 corridor.
Showers wind down and partly cloudy skies persist tonight with lows in the mid and high 60s. Rain chances exist each day through the week ahead, but we aren't expecting any complete washouts like we had Monday morning, just occasion showers and thunder. Severe weather threat (gusty winds and hail) is low end.
