Potential Flooding And Severe Storms

Potential Flooding And Severe Storms

The National Weather Service has issued a flash flood warning until 8 p.m. on Friday for south central Centre County, including State College. "The primary risk with any severe thunderstorm will be damaging wind gusts with hail a secondary concern".

A flash flood watch has been issued for central and western MA from noon through Monday night.

With showers and storms training over the same general area Monday afternoon and evening, the threat exists for some street and urban flash flooding.

The Meteorological Service (Met Service) has issued a Flash Flood Watch for low-lying and flood-prone areas of all parishes, effective until 5 a.m. tomorrow (June 16). Between that and the rain, our temperatures will be about 10° cooler than the weekend with highs in the mid to upper 70s Monday afternoon.

Far-right journalist Alex Jones released more pre-interview audio of Megyn Kelly late Thursday night and early Friday. Instead, NBC has thrust her into a very political role not all that different from the one she had at Fox News.

Storms are expected to subside around 1 a.m. Tuesday.

Up to two to three inches of rain are forecast to fall in western MA through late Monday night, with lower amounts to the south and east. In addition to always risky lightning these storms will bring very strong straight-line winds (and perhaps a tornado somewhere) along with very heavy rains.

It is projected that light to heavy showers will continue to affect sections of all parishes this evening and tonight.

Storms will start in the early afternoon in Western Maryland, creeping into western and northern Carroll and Howard counties by late afternoon. Damage to trees and power lines was considered possible from the storm. The day should be mostly sunny with a high near 83, the weather service says.
