John’s Tuesday Afternoon Forecast

The east saw widespread rainfall throughout much of the morning. More showers and storms are expected across the state this afternoon. Flash flood watches have been hoisted across much of the east and the Northern Mountains. More rain is expected across the east this afternoon with flash flooding likely with any heavier pockets of rain. Meanwhile, a weather disturbance will move across the central and west. Lift immediately under the disturbance will help kick off storms, but drier air will follow in its wake as it moves north.

Another cold front moves into the northeast Wednesday, recharging the moisture and providing lift for more storms. The front clears the central mountain chain Wednesday night, causing an east canyon wind, and will reach the Continental Divide Thursday. There will be better storm coverage central and west during the day Thursday due to the progress of the front.

The stormy weather pattern continues into the weekend as weather disturbances move across the state from the north. The first will move through late Friday into Saturday and the second late Sunday into Monday.
