Storm Team 27: Heavy rain likely Saturday

 

*BE SURE TO CHECK THE LATEST WATCHES AND WARNINGS AT THE TOP OF THE PAGE*

 

*LATEST ON THE STORM* 

Flood watches continue.  A band of moderate to heavy rain is blanketing the area. 

Rain total is a little over an inch since midnight in Newton Falls and Braceville in Southwestern Trumbull county at 9:30am.   A tree fell across the road at 928 W. River Blvd.Between 8th and 9th Street in Newton Falls, and water is covering parts of Warren-Ravenna Road, also in Newton Falls.

 Be alert for localized flooding.  If you encounter a flooded road, turn around, don’t drown.  As we come into the warm section of the storm today, we could see a dry pocket mid afternoon, but then a line of thunderstorms will form and move through area toward evening.  Though slight, there is the potential for a few strong thunderstorms late day and early evening. Winds up to 20-25 mph and gusting to 30mph at times would be enough to topple some trees that sit in saturated soil.    Our team has been watching the storm around the clock, so click back for frequent updates.

Saturday morning: Rain, heavy at times. (100%)
Mid 60’s

WHAT WE’RE TRACKING
The potential for heavy rain will continue throughout the morning and early afternoon. There could be a break in the rain mid afternoon, followed by thunderstorms possible late day/early evening.  There is a slight chance for strong thunderstorms.  Flooding will be a major concern through the weekend, with already saturated ground. If you come across a flooded road or path, do NOT drive through it. Turn around, don’t drown.

WHAT WE’RE LOOKING INTO
The showers will stick around for the first part of the day, Sunday. It will be breezy at times, and afternoon highs will only climb to the mid 60s.
