The NWS has us under a Flash Flood Watch through tomorrow night as a large plume of Gulf moisture has our entire area under the risk for heavy rain the entire time.
Flood Watches stretch all the way from the Florida Panhandle to Lake Erie:
So far since the watch came out we've only had 0.16" of rain, but very heavy rain with embedded storms line up all the way to the Kentucky/Tennessee line:
This has been one of the coolest July 4th's on record with a high here in Canal Winchester of 76°, and more rain coming to keep the temp low.
It's possible we could see an additional 2" before the end of the weekend. I'll update with local rain totals later.
