Localized Flooding possible around the county this weekend.
Earlier this week we had our first snowfall of the winter around the county. As we have moved through the week snow has melted and caused the ground to become very saturated. Now we have some excessive rainfall moving toward the county. Most of the rainfall will occur for us on Friday. Details on what to expect shortly. Here is a look at the radar as of the time of this post 9:00pm Thursday December 13th, 2018
Currently the system is moving through the Midwest areas of the country. Rain will begin to move into the county during the overnight hours and all day Friday we will be dealing with a very wet messy day.
Rain will begin to move into the county around 4-5am Friday morning. this will certainly speed up the melting of the remaining snowfall left on the ground. This will continue to saturate the already saturated ground.
By the early afternoon on Friday rain will continue to move through the area and the county.
As we end Friday and move into Saturday rainfall will be widespread.
We will see around 1.25 - 1.5 inches of rainfall around the county by midnight Friday into Saturday. Localized flooding will be a possibility with the amount of rainfall we will get in such a short period of time. Saturated ground will not take much. I will provide updates throughout the day on Friday right here and on social media. As always thank you for following Rowan County Weather.
