Rounds of rain on tap for much of this week, flooding possible

Remaining Ad Time Ad - 00:00

As Tropical Storm Arthur rides just off the eastern seaboard, and low pressure also approaches us from the west, a deep fetch of Atlantic moisture will surge into our area in the coming days. We look unsettled into tonight, with increasing clouds and scattered showers/a few t-storms. Rain will become widespread as low pressure moves in and stalls over our area into Tuesday.

Winds will pick up on occasion as well, tonight and into tomorrow, with gusts occasionally from 20-40MPH out of the south & east. Though severe storms are looking generally unlikely, heavy downpours and repeated rainfall through Wednesday and into Thursday could lead to at least localized flooding issues by mid-late week.

Generally, our area could see anywhere from around 1-3" of rain through Wednesday. With the wet ground, the chance for power outages could rise later in the week as well, stay weather aware! Mudslides & rockslides will also be possible.

As the clouds and rain keep us company, temperatures won't be getting very Spring-like this week. Highs tomorrow will be in the mid to upper 50s (likely occurring during the morning), and will struggle to break the 60 degree mark until Friday. Rain looks on and off through Thursday, then we could finally see more breaks of sun in-between (spottier) showers/t-storms into the weekend. Stay tuned!
