Synopsis...

Sat Aug 15 01:28:11 EDT 2020

Updated Friday Evening, August 14, 2020

...Warm And Humid With Scattered Showers And Thunderstorms Into The Weekend...

Scattered storms will prevail through the evening hours, before diminishing with sunset. Storms have yet again shown capable of producing very heavy rainfall, which has led to some flash flooding. Remember, if coming across a flooded road, turn around and find an alternative route. Many times it is too hard to judge the depth of the water or the condition of the road underneath.

A couple more unsettled days of rain chances follow over the weekend, closing with the passage of a cold front on Sunday. Drier, cooler, and less humid air then arrives next work week. Outlooks hint the cooler weather sticks around for much of the remainder of August.
