More widespread rain for Sunday night
More significant and consistent rain will move into our region for the late afternoon and throughout this evening. This rain will be moderate to heavy at times, especially southeast of I-75 and I-59. Expect another 0.5-1" of rain to accumulate tonight with rain not exiting our far eastern counties until about 5AM EST. Localized flash flooding is possible as some pockets of rain will be heavy. Overnight lows will be in the upper 30s to low 40s.
The rest of Monday will bring us a break from the rain with a partly sunny day and highs in the mid-50s. The low will be cooler in the low to mid-30s.
Tuesday through Friday will be our very rainy period. During this time, flooding will be a concern. Our area could see 5-8" of rain from now through Friday. Rain will begin on Tuesday afternoon. Wednesday will likely produce the highest rain totals, and there may be a few isolated thunderstorms. Both the possibilities of imminent flash flooding and flooding of creeks, rivers, and floodplains due to prolonged rain are of concern. Please be prepared and aware in the coming days if you live or commute through flood prone areas as ground will be saturated.
Temperatures will become warmer each day from Tuesday through Friday. Tuesday's highs will be in the mid-40s, Wednesday in the upper 50s, and then ending the week with mild highs in the low 60s.
Then, next weekend looks rainy as well, adding an additional 1-2" of rainfall.
