Potential for flooding rain continues

…A FLOOD WATCH is in effect through Sunday night for our area.  Steady rain, heavy at times, will pose the threat for flooding along streams, creeks, and poor drainage areas.  Some minor river flooding is possible as well.  Stay alert…

STAYING WET:  It’s been a soggy Saturday.  Steady rain continues this evening with a few breaks.  It’s been a cool day and we expect the damp chill to stay with us tonight.  Temps are slow to drop through the 40s.

As the surface low stalls along the coast, showers return for the day Sunday with an upper level low supporting them.  Winds pick up out of the northwest and undercut us with colder air as well.  Highs will likely be hit during the morning in the low to mid 40s.  Temps fall through the day.  Rain showers continue, heavy at times.  Rain will continue into the overnight hours, before finally tapering in the morning hours Monday.  It may end as a bit of wet snow.

HBH

Expect a soggy Sunday as well.

Total rainfall amounts may exceed 2” which sets up our flood potential.

RAIN

One model depicts over 2″ of rain in many spots through Sunday night.

WARMER DAYS!:  It’s breezy Monday, but we shift to a warming trend as we roll into the start of the week.  Highs will hit the upper 50s to near 60°.  We see the return of sunshine through the day.  Tuesday looks mainly sunny and mild as well, with highs in the low to mid 60s.  A weak front may bring some rain drops and clouds for Wednesday early.  Regardless, it’s still mild with a high in the mid 60s.

METEO

NEXT SYSTEM:  Two waves develop and race toward the Northeast for Thursday into Friday.  Expect temps to hold in the 50s and 60s with showers likely Thursday and Friday.

Enjoy the rest of your weekend!

Stay alert for flooded areas and remember if you approach a flooded roadway: Turn Around, Don’t Drown!
