Despite today’s drier conditions, forecasters expect several more inches of rain beginning tomorrow (Friday) and continuing through Monday. The National Weather Service (NWS) has issued a Flood Watch that will go into effect from Jan. 14 at 4 a.m. through Jan. 16 at 4 p.m. as flooding concerns persist with gusty winds continuing off and on through the weekend. NWS projects up to 4" of rain through Monday and expects rain to continue through the middle of next week.
Weakened trees remain a hazard following the rains, winds, and saturated soils. Use the break in the storm today to survey your property for vulnerable trees or branches ahead of the next round of rain and breezy conditions. Consult with an arborist or tree specialist if you spot a leaning tree.
