Flood warning in effect this morning for Anclote River in Pasco

Although Thursday promised drier weather, flooding remained a threat after days of heavy rain.

A river flood warning was in effect Thursday morning through Friday afternoon for the Anclote River at Elfers in Pasco County. The river was near flood stage Wednesday evening and was predicted to rise above that 20-foot mark by Thursday morning.

Warnings were also issued Wednesday for the Manatee River; Cypress Creek at Worthington Gardens; the Little Manatee River at Wimauma; the Myakka River at Myakka River State Park; and Horse Creek near Arcadia.

Waters were expected to remain elevated through the weekend. The warning included a reminder for residents not to drive through flooded areas.

The National Weather Service's forecast for Thursday warned of thunderstorms across the area, but also predicted drier air would move in to help push out an area of moisture sitting over the region since the beginning of the week.
