Threat for additional rain, flooding gradually winds down tonight
Several storms fired up earlier today, leading to heavy rainfall, frequent lightning and even some hail. One cluster of storms dropped several inches of rain in parts of Henry County, prompting water rescues and many flooded roadways around Bassett. The Smith River has been rising to levels not seen in decades. Some flood waters will start to recede, but we'll watch the Smith River and surrounding areas closely overnight.
As the heat of the day wears off, any storms out there will gradually dissipate. Watch for areas of fog overnight and flooded roads in parts of western Henry County.
Tonight, temperatures will drop into the low to mid 60s as we see cloudy skies overhead.
Memorial Day looks warm and fairly humid with high temperatures mainly in the 70s. The better chance for any storms looks to be in the mountains. Most of us will have time to spend outdoors.
For the new week, temperatures will mostly stay in the 70s and 80s as we track increasing rain chances throughout the week.
As a slow-moving front inches closer, we'll have to monitor the potential for flooding Friday and perhaps next weekend as well.
