Last Updated on June 6, 2019 4:13 pm

Numerous showers and thunderstorms, which could lead to flooding, will be the weather storm for the next several days.

The National Weather Service (NWS) says in the Thursday Hazardous Weather Outlook, the strong to isolated severe pulse thunderstorms are possible this afternoon and evening. Storms this evening and tonight may contain torrential downpours, which may lead to flooding of poor drainage areas.

Looking toward the weekend and through the middle part of next, the continued chance of flooding will linger.

NWS says that a stalled frontal boundary and abundant moisture will result in scattered to numerous rounds of showers and thunderstorms.

The excessive rainfall forecast from the NWS Weather Prediction Center shows a moderate risk of flash flood in southwestern North Carolina through Sunday, while the High Country is in a slight risk.

Shower and thunderstorm chances are 90% for tonight (Thursday night), 80% for Friday, Saturday & Sunday, 70% for Monday & Tuesday.
