Wind Advisory in Effect Until 6 p.m.
Weather Update – 3:15 p.m. Monday
Winds have been gusting between 40 and 50 miles per hour at peak this afternoon so far. The heavy rain continues to push east with a small possibility for localized flash flooding to occur this afternoon. Here’s what you need to know going forward for the rest of the day.
A Wind Advisory is in effect for the counties shaded in until 6pm. Winds could still gust over 40 miles per hour in these areas before the advisory expires.
The heavy rain will bring a chance for localized flash flooding with rain falling at a rate of 1-3 inches per hour. It won’t last an hour long at those rates but it will still make driving difficult when the line comes through.
We should be done with the rain by 8 p.m. at the latest though it will still be windy at times during the first half of the night. Clouds will remain overhead going into Tuesday morning, but with clearer skies during the afternoon.
