After 7-10" of rain Monday, flooding of roadways, rivers, creeks, and streams will still be possible through Tuesday and into Tuesday night as rivers and creeks continue to crest. 

 Overnight, a few sprinkles will still be possible, and when you wake up Wednesday morning there will likely be some patchy fog and a few sprinkles to contend with on the way to work and school.

Temperatures will be pleasant and humidity levels will be tolerable.
