Thunderstorms Expected Thursday as NWS Issues a Flash Flood Watch

It’s going to be a rainy Thursday.

The National Weather Service (NWS) has issued a flash flood watch for Montgomery County effective from 2 p.m. Thursday through Friday at 2 a.m.

According to the NWS, light showers are expected Thursday morning, with thunderstorms developing in the afternoon. Heavy rainfall and lightning are likely to occur. Heavy rainfall amounts of 2 to 4 inches are expected. 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.
