Rain chances continue
Don't put your umbrellas away just yet. Rain chances are sticking around into the weekend. Flooding is already happening across Green Country causing some people to evacuate. Any more rain that falls will increase the flooding threat.
Ahead of any more rain or storms moving into Green Country, stay with the FOX23 Severe Weather Team as we track all the storm chances on-air, online, and on the FOX23 Weather App.
- It is a great time to REVIEW your severe weather plan. Make sure everyone in the family knows what to do when watches and warnings are issued.
- Know what county you live/work in along with the surrounding counties. Here is a map with the FOX23 Viewing Area that you can download and highlight your county for stormy days.
- Check out the FOX23 Severe Weather Tip Sheet.
There is a large concern for flooding conditions through the week with more storm chances arriving
With all the already SOAKED ground and the lakes/rivers being full, flooding is going to be a BIG concern through the next few days.
Some parts of Green Country received more than 8 inches of rain in less than 24-hours. A FLASH FLOOD WATCH is in place for the majority of the area through Thursday morning. More rain chances will stick around through the week and into the weekend. That means that water levels are going to be a concern, not only where rain is falling but also downstream.
