TODAY/TONIGHT – Scattered storms will continue through midday and then we get a brief break in the rain before our next round. We’ll stay mostly cloudy for our Friday with highs in the upper 70s by this afternoon. Our severe threat has been downgraded, but with multiple rounds of heavy rainfall we have a greater potential of seeing flash flooding. Our next round of scattered storms will move in later tonight. Heading into the overnight hours, more widespread thunderstorms make their way through the area and continue into tomorrow. Overnight lows will be in the upper 60s tonight.
