Rain soaks Berks; flash flood watch in effect

Rain soaks Berks; flash flood watch in effect

Daily high temperatures should swell to the 80s and perhaps near 90 by the weekend; nightly numbers will settle to the 70s.

The flood watch extends into Wednesday, and until it expires, drivers should be alert to the possibility of high water in some places due to consistent rain and storms.

Because this is a fluid situation - no pun intended - that watch could be expanded to the Piedmont and Foothills over time if the heavy rain concentration moves westward with an expected wobble of the upper-level low. A few heavy rains with lightning and small hail are possible, but most storms in this region today look like general monsoon thunderstorms, any storms that cross into eastern Las Animas county could grow stronger.

Mostly cloudy skies continue with a daily chance of rain and storms.




The overall chance for rain is 70 percent. But as has been the case most of the week, it's not the heat but rather the humidity that makes it rather unbearable outside. Showers and storms started shortly before noon. The rain will become heavier and more widespread Wednesday and Wednesday night. As much as two to four inches of rain can fall in parts of the area during the next 48 hours.

The rain compounded delays on roads undergoing scheduled repairs and crashes were reported throughout Saturday, though by Sunday morning the roads were in slightly better shape. The risk for flash flooding will take place on Wednesday before the weather improves for the weekend.

Saturday will be mostly cloudy and humid, with a chance of showers and thunderstorms and highs in the low to mid-80s, as the cold front crosses the region, forecasters said.

Hang in for a sticky and locally wet ride this week!
