A Flash Flood Watch continues with more tropical downpours

Thursday brought more clouds and periods of rain as well. Monroe County dispatch reports that U.S. Rt.

Wilson Creek is fed by water coming from the mountains, and folks around there know if there is heavy rain upstream, serious flooding can happen.

While flash flooding can not be ruled out, the primary concern is flooding of small streams and low-lying areas, the weather service said.

Some areas of the region have reported more than 2 inches of rain already. With forecasters calling for possible flooding, he said he would be watching the river carefully. Flash flooding will also be possible if thunderstorms repeatedly move over the same locations.

Off and on moderate to heavy rain will occur over the next 48 hours.

Beyond the weekend, you'll have to keep your umbrella at the ready.

Rain lingers in the forecast through Tuesday. Saturday will likely be the wetter of the two days.
