More Rain Later in the Week

We'll get a break in precipitation Wednesday and early Thursday, but additional rounds of showers and storms will arrive late Thursday, Friday, and Saturday -- with flash flooding possible with the late week activity.

River flooding will worsen through the week with moderate or major flooding at some locations.

Flood Safety

Turn around and don't drive through a flooded roadway. Don't drive around barricades. Don't travel until conditions improve. Don't let a bad decision be your last.

Be weather aware this afternoon and evening, and have multiple ways to receive warnings.
