Don’t count on any outdoor plans for Sunday--strong to severe storms, torrential rainfall and the potential for flash flooding will all be a part of the forecast for your Sunday. Expect severe storms this morning, and again this afternoon and evening. This all day rain event could produce 1″ to 3″+ totals, so a FLASH FLOOD WATCH will remain in effect until 7 AM Monday for the southern two thirds of the viewing area.

Torrential rain expected for much of the TV6 viewing area.

Be prepared for quick rises on area rivers and streams, and ponding on roads and low lying areas. Do not attempt to drive across flooded roads. Turn around, don’t drown! Rain continues into the overnight hours, coming to an end Monday morning. Look for highs in the 50′s with off and on rain chances next week.

Heavy rain and strong storms will be part of our all day weather event.
