Isolated Flash Flooding Possible

Scattered to numerous showers will close out the work week

Flash Flood Watch is in effect for portions of the Mountains from Friday afternoon until midnight Friday night. 

Scattered showers and storms dominate the remainder of the week with coverage a tad higher due to an area of low pressure to our west and a backdoor cold front to our north. These two systems will allow increased coverage as the atmosphere squeezes out moisture over the Carolinas. Expect scattered to numerous showers through the day on Friday with isolated flash flooding and frequent lightning being the primary threat. Some storms could produce 2”+ very quickly which could lead to flooding especially in low lying, poor drainage areas along with locations that have already seen a decent amount of rain this week. The severe weather threat is less than Marginal over the next couple of days, but I will not rule out a couple of severe thunderstorms – if we see them they will be very few and far between. The weekend will be split with scattered showers still in play on Saturday, but much drier air (slightly lower humidity!) on Sunday. Next week will be hot, but not as humid!

Tonight: Few showers. AM patchy fog. Low: 71. Wind: SW 5-10.

Friday: Scattered to PM numerous showers. High: 88. Wind: W/SW 5-10.

Have a wonderful end to the week!
