The ABC-7 First Alert continues for scattered showers and thunderstorms through Saturday. The main threat through tomorrow will be heavy rain, isolated flooding, and gusty winds.
Just a reminder, do not drive into flooded roadways! You won't be able to tell how deep the water is so don't take the risk. When storms move into the area they move in fast, if your vehicle stalls abandon it and seek higher ground.
