Not Over Yet: Flooding Remains Concern After Rounds Of Severe Thunderstorms Sweep Through Area

The severe thunderstorms that brought torrential rain, frequent lightning, huge hailstones and damaging wind gusts have moved out of the area, but flooding will be a concern on Tuesday, July 23.

Most of the steady and strong storm activity ended by midnight, but thousands of residents in the region remain without power and scattered rounds of heavy rain have been making the morning commute a challenging one for many.

Flash Flood Watches and Warnings will be in effect until noon Tuesday for most of the area as a cold front has finally pushed through, leading to cooler and comfortable conditions.

An additional half-inch to 1 inch of rainfall, in addition to the 2 to 3 inches that fell on Monday, July 22, is likely during the day on Tuesday, with locally higher amounts.

The threat of more heavy rain and storms will end by around 1 p.m. Tuesday on a mostly cloudy day with a high temperature in the low 70s.

For the rest of the afternoon and evening on Tuesday, there will be some lingering showers.

Wednesday, July 24 will be mostly sunny with a high temperature around 80 degrees.

Thursday, July 25 will be another picture-perfect day with sunny skies and a high in the low 80s.
