An active night was seen on Thursday evening into early Friday morning as portions of the county warning area (CWA) saw damaging winds and flooding. Warm, moist tropical air during the day on Thursday helped to spark severe storms that began to develop during the late afternoon hours. These storms continued through the evening before the severe threat switched over to a flooding threat during the overnight hours. Heavy rain continued to fall across much of the area throughout the overnight as a cold front pushed eastward. Numerous trees and power lines were reported down across southeast portions of the CWA, while northwest/northern areas dealt with significant flooding. As much as 6+ inches of rain fell across Midland and Bay counties.
