Rumbly, rainy Sunday
This morning, you may have been woken up by some rumbly monsters outside the window. We're not currently under a severe thunderstorm or tornado watch and we don't expect a watch to be issued at this time. We are still however under a FLASH FLOOD WATCH through Sunday evening.
There is a MARGINAL risk for severe weather today; a 1 out of 5. Yesterday, there was a slight risk; a 2 out of 5. Overall, we're not expecting too many severe storms, but if we do see a storm get an attitude, it will likely bring gusty winds or large hail more than a tornado. Any severe storms will be isolated. That being said, it will still be noisy and heavy rain will fall at times, but these aren't criteria for a "severe" storm.
I'll be with you until the storms are out of here and bring updates as necessary. Be aware of flooded streets and TURN AROUND, DON'T DROWN. Every storm we receive footage of vehicles getting stuck in flooded roadways from daredevils who decided to take the risk. Only a few inches of water is enough to displace your vehicle.
For the latest updates and FIRST in the city, follow our social media accounts. If necessary, I'll bring you live nonstop coverage again on our 24/7 weather channel. You can catch it on Cox 18, Eatel 120, or with an antenna on 2.3. It also streams live on the WBRZ Weather App as well as wbrz.com.
Stay updated through the day and enjoy your Sunday! Again, I'm here with you!
