FORECAST DISCUSSION:

Good morning and happy Wednesday! 

Reminant moisture from what was Tropical Storm Fred is in the area this morning dumping heavy rainfall across the eastern third of the state.  Because of this, flood watches will remain in effect for parts of the area through the afternoon and early evening. 

As we head through the rest of the day, moister will wrap around from this post tropical area of low pressure and lead to a few more showers and thunderstorms across the area.  Temperatures will be just a little warmer and more seasonal for this time of year and climb to the low to mid 80s. 

Even with the remains of the tropical storm out of the area, we won’t be done with the chance for showers. Warmer temperatures, and high humidity will stick around for the rest of the week as a series of systems moves continuing our chance for showers and thunderstorms, especially with the heat of the afternoon.

Have a great day!
