Heads up! Localized flash flooding possible through Friday evening

ROANOKE, Va. – It is still very humid by our standards, and that will lead to patches of fog early Friday morning. That moisture will also allow some pockets of rain/storms to develop as soon as 10 a.m.

These would start out pretty sporadic through midday.

Similar to Thursday, we’ll see storms become more numerous throughout the afternoon as temperatures rise into the upper 70s and lower 80s.

These storms will move slowly, bringing the threat for localized flash flooding throughout the afternoon and evening. All it would take is 1-3″ of rain for flash flooding to occur, which is certainly possible with some storms Friday. The threat for that is higher in areas north of US 460.

Excessive rainfall outlook for Friday, 6/11/2021

Storm chances go down after about 9 p.m., but some light showers may linger once a front sags to our south. Make sure to bring the bug spray if you plan on being outdoors during the evening.
