Flash flood watch into the afternoon; more wet weather follows

It's the final day of August and we're closing in on the wettest August in recent memory; one of which could gone down in the record books.

A Flash Flood Watch is in effect until 2:00 this afternoon with 1-2" of rain for most spots; 3-4" locally. With saturated ground as it is, watch for localized flash flooding along creeks and streams as well as ponding water on the roadways.

Expect daytime highs to slide back a bit (the mid to low 80s) as overcast skies reduce the amount of sunshine that we'll see throughout the day. The stormiest portion of the day looks to be the morning into the early afternoon.

Labory Day looks to be wet too with spotty showers for most of the holiday. While it doesn't look like a washout, the chance is certainly there based on our current setup.

Stay dry and have a great holiday weekend!
