It will be another round of scattered thunderstorms for Cumberland County on Thursday, with the National Weather Service issuing a flash flood watch from noon until midnight.
NWS says recent rainfall has saturated the ground, so any heavy downpours in the region Thursday could cause flash flooding. The heaviest rain is expected to form in thunderstorms, which are expected to pop up across the county this afternoon and into the evening.
ABC27 Meteorologist Brett Thackara said the stationary front that has caused weather issues throughout the week will once again fuel downpours and thunderstorms Thursday. Flash flooding is a concern today along with the potential for some hail and damaging winds from these storms. Highs will be in the lower 80s.
By Friday, skies will gradually clear into the afternoon and it will become breezy. It will be less humid as well with highs around 80 degrees. Overall, the area can expect a pleasant and dry weekend for outdoor activities. Expect lots of sun on Saturday with highs near 80 and a few more clouds Sunday with highs in the lower 80s.
