CHATTANOOGA (WRCB)-- The remnants of Tropical Storm Lee are now just a weak area of low pressure moving over the Tennessee Valley.  The bulk of the rainfall, however, fell ahead of the low yesterday and last night.

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.
