Winter weather expected to continue into Friday

Winter weather expected to continue into Friday

With the National Weather Service forecasting rain through the weekend, Gov. Jim Justice has directed state emergency officials and the West Virginia National Guard to prepare for potential widespread flooding. Our second, more significant, chance for rainfall will reach Greater Lafayette just after midnight Saturday morning.

"A Flash Flood Watch is in effect through Saturday night for areas south of I-70 where an additional 1" to 2" of rain is possible between Friday night and late Saturday night.

The statement from the NWS said "with saturated conditions, nearly no area will be immune". That second round will generate sporadic and scattered rainfall across the viewing area through the predawn hours Sunday morning.

"Damaging winds are the primary threat with that, though sometimes you can see a brief tornado spin up", Stumps said. We are at a one on the severe threat index for the flood and t-storm conditions expected.

Flood warnings continue through Tuesday as heavy early-spring rain continues across the state.

A regionwide flood watch continues. She said the only flooding reported Thursday was in District 1 on Bethel Road near Oak Grove Road in northeastern Limestone County.

As the rain continues and water rises throughout the day, more roads are likely to be flooded.

Madison County EMA spokesman Todd Harmeson urged drivers who see high water to "turn around, don't drown".

A 52-year-old woman was found dead in her vehicle that was submerged in a ditch in IL and a 53-year-old man was killed in Oklahoma when his auto was swept away by flood waters, local media reported.

Sunday: Mostly cloudy with a high near 51 degrees and a low of 32 degrees.
