(OLNEY/NEWTON) As the frontal boundary bringing us all this rain continues to move eastward, we’ll see plenty of more rain over the next 12 to 18 hours. Some thunderstorm activity later this afternoon into tonight could bring us some severe conditions and more heavy rainfall amounts. As the front moves out of our area, the rain will end and we’ll return to sunny and dry conditions for Sunday, Monday, and Tuesday. Then it’s back to more precipitation by next Wednesday. Stay tuned to a NOAA Weather Alert Radio for updates.
(OLNEY/NEWTON) The National Weather Service has a Flood Watch in effect today through tonight for Richland, Jasper, Clay, and all surrounding counties. While our Southeastern area had already received up to 2 inches of rain earlier this week, another 1 to 3 inches is possible before the rain stops early Sunday morning. All area residents should be alert to flooding. All motorists are reminded to stay off those roads that are flood water covered. All regional rivers and creeks will be out of their banks at least into the first of next week.
