More Rain Expected Thursday as NWS Issues a Flash Flood Watch

Heavy rain is expected to return Thursday evening.

The National Weather Service (NWS) has issued a flash flood watch for Montgomery County effective from 6 p.m. through late Thursday night.

According to the NWS, showers are expected late this afternoon and evening. Flash flooding may result given the saturated soil from Wednesday’s heavy rain.

Runoff from the rain may cause rapid rises of water in low-lying urban areas as well as streams and creeks resulting in flash flooding.

Montgomery County officials advise residents that flooding kills more people every year than any other weather hazard. Do not drive through flooded areas. If you live in a flood-prone area, be prepared to move to higher ground if flooding develops.  Please stay alert for any warnings.

Stay weather alert. If you encounter high water while driving, remember to turn around.
