7:00 AM | **Still more rain around today and major flooding issues remain all due to combination of excessive tropical moisture and upslope flow; southwesterly flow in the upper atmosphere will promote some drying in the region by tomorrow and significant drying to occur next week**

Discussion

There will be more rain and a possible thunderstorm to start the day across the region and major flooding issues will continue; especially, in the foothills - all due to tremendous amounts of tropical moisture and upslope flow. The threat for heavy rain will diminish later today and tonight as the upper level flow becomes more from a southwesterly direction, but any further rainfall today will simply add to runoff from the extremely saturated grounds where, in some cases, 6 to 12 inches of rain has fallen over the past couple of days. The pattern changes considerably next week and it looks like it will be an extended period of dry and warm weather to help with the recovery efforts.
