A very moist and stagnant atmosphere set the stage for heavy rains from slow-moving thunderstorms Friday morning, August 2nd. Several locations across the area observed up to 5-8". To make matters worse, this rain fell during a relatively short period of time with rainfall rates of 3+ inches per hour in some cases. As a result, flooding of property and several roadways resulted, and rivers rose to minor and moderate flood stages. Additional river rises to flood stage are forecast through the weekend as well, as a large volume of water continues to work its way through the river system.
