Weather always changes, and we're seeing this play out in an epic way this week. After several weeks of hot, dry weather the overall pattern has changed to a wet and humid one. The risk for flash flooding will take place on Wednesday before the weather improves for the weekend. Here are the details:

Status quo weather continues tonight and early Wednesday, with scattered downpours and an occasional thunderstorm.   The weather remains very humid, with overnight lows only in the 70s. A slow moving cold front brings heavy rain to the region on Wednesday. We're expecting widespread heavy rain for more than half the day - from late morning through early evening.

The rain on Wednesday poses the greatest risk for flooding.  A general 1-2" of accumulation is expected to fall through Thursday morning.  Despite the really dry weather, this could cause some minor flooding in poor drainage and urban areas.

The cold front heads to the east and the weather is expected to dry out for Thursday.
