Weather Update (Conditions Improving) – 5/10/19 at 5:30 PM

Weather conditions continue to improve across the region which has lead the NWS to remove several of our northern counties from the current Flash Flood Watch.
Stability in the atmosphere has prevented development of storms throughout the day and we could expect this to bring us a mostly quiet evening.
There continues to be a chance for storm activity to develop Saturday morning. Generally, our region could see rainfall totals between 1 to 3 inches over the next 24 hours. There is still some uncertainty on how exactly these amounts will fall, but based on the latest forecast, the heaviest of this rainfall should occur along the coast. The best news of the day is that none of the forecast models are showing any continuation of the severe hourly rainfall rates we experienced earlier this week. Instead, HCFCD is anticipating hourly rainfall rates staying closer to 0.5 to 1 inches per hour.
