44% of the country is in drought. But we have the opposite problem. Too much rain! This afternoon Bloomfield picked up 1.5”-3” in a couple of hours. But the majority of the state stayed dry! That’s the essence of the forecast for the next week or so. Hit or miss showers and storms. The exception will be tonight into tomorrow morning when thunderstorms will become more widespread.
Scattered showers and storms will continue Friday. Any storms that develop have the potential to produce heavy rain and localized flooding. Small streams, low lying areas and poor drainage areas are most vulnerable. The weekend isn’t a complete wash out. But you will need to run inside from time to time with scattered storms both days.
A flash flood watch remains in effect through Friday afternoon.
