Flood warning issued for Tiffin River near Stryker

Potential For Significant Rainfall/More Flooding This Week Ahead Across The Chicago Area

Tonight: Rain redeveloping this evening with some thunder as well. The rain will spread across the area and carry over into next weekend.

So far, it's been a quiet start to the day across South Jersey, with most of the rain bypassing the area. New precipitation amounts between a tenth and quarter of an inch, except higher amounts possible in thunderstorms.

A flood watch goes into effect Thursday morning and lasts through Friday afternoon.

Today: Scattered showers, with thunderstorms also possible after 11 a.m.

Flooding won't necessarily be much of an issue for most people in the region.

Whenever you drive into a flooded street, keep in mind to turn around and don't go through the puddle. If your basement sometimes lets in water during heavy rainstorms, today may be one of those days.

Federal judge issues injunction against Missouri abortion laws
The Hyde Amendment, a budget amendment passed every year since 1976, specifically bans directing federal funds to abortion. Supporters of the mandate plan on urging Indiana Attorney General, Curtis Hill, to make an appeal.

Flooding issues should be minor with ponding on the roads and some rivers rising.

The Pawcatuck River in Southeastern Connecticut is already around 1 foot above flood stage and minor flooding is occurring.

You can follow my updates here and on Twitter @growingwisdom. We could see some lingering showers on Friday, but we'll otherwise have a mix of sun and clouds and a high near 50.

All storms will be gone by sunrise Monday leaving a dry day with highs in the 70s so not a bad day for the Royals home opener.

Saturday Night: Partly cloudy, with a low around 37.

Friday: Cloudy and cool. It'll be cooler, but still comfortable with highs in the mid to upper 60s.
