Flash flood warnings issued
A flash flood watch, which has been in effect since Thursday morning, has been extended till Friday night.

According to NWS, the slow moving storms and resultant rains could renew the flooding problems witnessed by the state earlier in the week.
The rains are not expected to be as bad as last week, but with the already swollen water bodies, flash floods are very likely.
