So, it’s raining, and not a little bit either. There may be as much as 2-4 inches accumulating just within this 24 hour period. Because of the volume, many different warnings have been released for the region, so make sure you keep safe, dry and updated on what to expect today.

  • A flash flood watch has been in effect since last night, and it will be hanging around until 9 p.m. tonight. A warning is actually in place until 10:45 a.m.
  • A tornado watch (yes, tornado) has just been issued for areas of the region. This one is set through 1 p.m., according to the National Weather Service.
  • Coastal flood watches are also currently on the books.

We’ve been through earthquakes, blizzards, thundersnow, lightning shows and record setting heat. What’s a little rain?
