Heavy rain-severe weather event likely tonight !
A storm system is currently getting ready to move into the Pine Belt this afternoon into tonight and will likely not pass through until Wednesday morning. There is a threat of severe weather with this system tonight which includes isolated strong tornadoes, severe thunderstorms and heavy rain. The main concern with this system is the heavy rain that is expected. Average amounts will range from 2-4 inches with some isolated higher amounts. Due to the heavy rain from last weekend, the ground is already saturated and this is why a Flash Flood Watch has been issued for the viewing area beginning this evening and lasting into Wednesday. We will continue to monitor this developing weather situation. Rex.
