Heavy rain Thursday

A weather system brings a round of heavy rain to the region.

Posted: Jun 19, 2019 10:27 PM

Thursday is the last day of a very wet spring. It's only fitting that it would end with heavy rain. The next wave of low pressure arrives on Thursday afternoon.  The rain looks to fall heavy enough to cause some possible flash flooding in the region.  Here are the details...

Rain develops between 10am-12pm tomorrow

Heaviest rain tomorrow afternoon (1-3pm)

1-2" of accumulation regionwide, locally higher amounts possible

Isolated flooding possible, especially in poor drainage, low lying, and urban areas

Rain ends early Friday morning

This event caps a very wet spring.  May was the 4th wettest on record.  Rainfall since April 1st has exceeded 16" for Griffiss in Rome.  This is about twice our average during this time period.

Going forward, we do expect the weather to dry out as we head into Friday and the weekend.  The weather looks really nice for Saturday and Sunday.  Warm and humid weather looks to return for early next week.
