(WOWK) — As of Friday evening, the majority of the WOWK viewing area is under an areal flood watch. That term just means that a large area is under a flood watch.
Key factors coming into play for the risk of flooding in the region:
- 2 to 4 inches of rain possible across the region Friday through Monday morning
- Already soaked soil
- Melting snow pack in the mountains
- Convective storms, or thunderstorms, produce heavier local rates of rainfall and runoff
Remember, if you come across a place where water is moving over and covering the road, don’t drive into that area.
We will monitor the conditions and keep you up-to-date, but it’s a good idea to get the StormTracker 13 weather app so you can have instant notifications of any weather alerts. You can download the app for free here.
When you get the app, be sure to enable all notifications as well as location services. You will receive alerts the instant they are issued for your location.
