First Alert Weather Day Friday: Heavy rain, flash flood risk


Friday is a First Alert Weather Day.

The Tri-State is under a Flash Flood Watch until 2 a.m. Saturday.

The heaviest downpours will come this afternoon and slowly cross our region as a cold front absorbs moisture moving north from the remnants of Tropical Storm Cindy.

We will see 2 to 3 inches accumulate as temperatures only push into the upper 70s by 5 p.m.

Our biggest concerns will be mid-day into early this evening.

Flooded creeks and water-covered roads are possible. Combined with low visibility and slick conditions, this will undoubtedly lead to major traffic delays.

There is a small chance for high, damaging winds and small hail, but most storms will not be severe. Tornadoes are not expected.

Isolated showers will linger in the area this evening before we dry out early Saturday.

Once the system moves out, we're in for a nice stretch of pleasant, dry weather with cooler-than-normal temperatures.

Saturday and Sunday look great with lots of sunshine and highs in the low-to-mid 70s.

Overnight lows will slip into the upper 50s.

We will stay dry and mild through most of next week.
