A Flash Flood Watch has been issued in preparation for tonight's dangerous downpours. As of right now, the entire area sits under a slight risk (2 of 5) for severe weather development with all forms of severe weather possible, including isolated tornadoes.

Many signs are pointing to a potent event, or two, through the day - but there remains plenty of uncertainty when it comes to timing. The best thing to do is keep the forecast close at hand via the KIMT weather app in order to be immediately alerted when storms are approaching the area.

This could also be a rather prolonged event which is why a Flash Flood Watch has been issued. Heavy rainfall rates and flash flooding will be possible. Shower and storm risks will carry into Thursday morning before gradual clearing takes place and severe weather is replaced with dangerous heat. The heat index for both Thursday and Friday will be in the 100s with very little breeze to help stir the air and keep things feeling cooler.
