Afternoon Update 3/24/2023: Dreary & Drizzly, but Calm (for now)

Kermit the Frog looks listlessly out a window at constant falling rain

Hello Cardinal Country! Clouds continue to stream in alongside our frontal boundary parked to the south along with the occasional shower to keep things on the wet side. However, it looks like this is the period where we won’t have to deal with anything too heavy as that is supposed to hold off until the evening hours. Winds continue to stay breezy throughout the afternoon as they were earlier today and are expected to increase gradually as we work our way into the evening hours. We look to try and warm to the mid-40s, but that all depends on how we can thin out the shower activity through these afternoon hours.

The attention then focuses on the heavier rain overnight, and remember, Cardinal Country, that a Flood Watch remains in effect for Delaware County until 8 AM tomorrow when we could see anywhere between 2-4 additional inches of rain, with the heavier totals depending on the track of the low-pressure system as well as thunderstorms.

Stay tuned for further updates from us & the National Weather Service, stay awesome, and fly safe, Cardinals! Remember, if flooding develops on the road ahead of you, make a safe choice by using an alternate route. As the National Weather Service’s famous slogan says: “Turn Around, Don’t Drown!”
