Quiet and dry today.
 
Quiet and dry weather is expected today as high pressure persists over the area. After a clear and sunny morning, clouds will gradually begin increasing during the afternoon. Rain chances return later on Sunday as a warm front approaches. This feature may stall near the area before finally exiting Tuesday, tapering off any steady rainfall the area receives. High pressure builds in starting Wednesday and sticks around going into the weekend. Unfortunately, it will not be strong enough to hold off daily chances for isolated to scattered afternoon and evening showers or thunderstorms as temperatures will far exceed averages for this time of year.

Flash Flood Guidance

Flash Flood Guidance (FFG) provides a general indication of the amount of rainfall evenly distributed over various durations (in hours), necessary to cause small streams to overflow their natural banks. During heavy rainfall, accurate interpretation of the guidance consists of the combination of rainfall that has already occurred plus any additional rainfall that can be confidently expected to fall over the same location in the immediate future.

It should be noted that FFG values represent estimates of average soil moisture and stream flow conditions. Flooding may occur with less rainfall than indicated in areas of high rainfall intensities, impervious surfaces, or steep slopes.
