Suchan Says: Severe Risk Over… Rain – Thunder Continue

Showers and thunderstorms continue across 60% of the area

The isolated severe weather risk has ended but localized flooding remains possible as additional showers and storms move into the area through the next 3 to 4 hours before gradually ending.  Some areas where repeated “slow” moving thunderstorms occurred have seen 1 to just under 3 inches of rain!  Another one inch or so of rain is possible on top of what we’ve seen but mainly across I-70 and north.  South of I-70, showers and thunder are very spotty and not producing the same amount of localized heavy rain.

Rain ends tonight with a nice Tuesday on the way.  There will be just a slight 20% chance of a late day shower or storm Tuesday in an otherwise warm, breezy day in the lower 80s.
