Rounds of Heavy Rain Taking a Toll
Posted on: 07/23/2013
By  Mike Cullums
National Weather Service forecasters in Charleston say that while a shower or storm could pop up any time today, they expect a line of thunderstorms - possibly severe and likely producing another round of heavy rain - to cross the Ohio River late this afternoon, to be followed by a cold front overnight. Passage of the front will usher in at least a few days of lower humidity and clear skies.
The waterlogged region could stand a break. The repeated rounds of brief heavy rains are taking their toll.
A growing number of rock slides and fallen trees are being reported now, after each storm goes through. The county highway and city street departments are spending most of their time clearing roadways instead of performing planned maintenance projects.  Problems continue under the roof at Marietta City Hall, as it’s too wet to properly seal. The roof has been under construction and sprung a major leak over the weekend.
The extended forecast calls for that clear, dry period from tomorrow night thru Friday…a 30 to 40 percent chance of rain Saturday and Sunday…then dry and clear again Monday and Tuesday.
