...SHOWERS AND THUNDERSTORMS CONTINUE INTO THE WEEKEND...
* Thursday through Sunday, the thunderstorm threat transitions
into a heavy rain and flash flood risk, with slow storm motions
and increased moisture present. There is moderate chance for
widespread showers and thunderstorms this weekend.
* If you are outdoors this week, have a storm safety plan. Make sure
to have a way to seek shelter within a sturdy building in case a
thunderstorm forms nearby. If you do not have access to a sturdy
building, a hard-topped vehicle with the windows rolled up is a
good option for protection from lightning. Complete outdoor
activities in the morning before afternoon and evening
* Cold and fast flows will continue on area streams and rivers.
Avoid recreating near fast-flowing waterways. Afternoon and
evening thunderstorms could generate flash floods, especially near
recent burn scars. If a nearby stream rises quickly or the water
becomes turbid with mud or debris, get to higher ground
