Monday AM Forecast: Heavy downpours likely this afternoon
Showers and storms this week come with a heightened risk for street and poor drainage flooding.
Today & Tonight: It’s a new month with the same weather pattern on repeat. Temperatures will climb into the low 90s by the early afternoon as showers and storms develop. About half of the area will get measurable rainfall. Isolated locations could see 1-3 inches of rain falling in a short amount of time. This can easily overwhelm the drainage system. Keep your WBRZ WX App close by and keep your notifications turned on. Flood advisories or warnings will be issued if necessary. Storms will fizzle out as the sun goes down. Temperatures overnight will be in the low 70s.
Reminder: With the threat for impactful weather— street and poor drainage flood —please have access to alerts through this week. You can download or activate the WBRZ WX App on your Apple or Android device or turn on a NOAA Weather Radio for bulletins such as watches and urgent warnings. Of course, WBRZ, WBRZ+ and the Cable Weather Channel will have updates as active weather dictates.
Up Next: The threat for heavy rain will continue for at least the first half of the week. Summery temperatures in the low 90s will be interrupted by heavy downpours. About half of the WBRZ viewing area will see rain every afternoon this week. Isolated locations could see 1-3 inches of rain in a single afternoon. The areas that do not see heavy downpours can expect to pick up 1-3 inches of rain throughout the week. Click here to see the 7-day forecast.
