Heavy rainfall washed out roads and driveways in the Roswell area in northeast Tuscarawas County. The rainfall analysis from the National Weather Service indicated upwards of 4 inches of rain fell in that area in a short period of time.
A Flash Flood Emergency warning was issued by the weather service. Flash Flood Emergency Warnings are rarely issued by NWS and only when there is a critical threat to life and property.
Showers and thunderstorms will likely ramp up again today across east-central Ohio. The threat for severe thunderstorms today is low but a storm this afternoon and evening could produce some gusty wind and small hail.
Like last evening’s storms, today’s storm cells will be slow-movers capable of producing heavy rainfall. Isolated flash flooding will be possible in just about any location. FOLKS IN THE ROSWELL AREA affected by last night’s flooding should remain particularly aware of today’s weather.
SIMULATED radar from the hi-res model shows the best time for showers and storms here in the Valley late this afternoon through late this evening:
The National Weather Service projects 1.00″ to 1.50″ of additional rainfall today through Monday afternoon. Locally higher amounts will certainly be possible depending on where storms happen to occur.
Temperatures this afternoon will top out in the low 80s.
A disturbance riding along a stalled frontal boundary will bring likely chances for showers and thunderstorms before dawn Sunday morning. Again, severe storms are not expected but heavy rainfall will be possible.
Additional rounds of showers and thunderstorms will highlight Sunday’s weather – especially during the afternoon and evening. With the abundant amount of moisture available, heavy rainfall possibilities will continue.
