Sunday Evening Update

Good evening, folks. Heavy rain continues to cause local high water issues across the southeast, and this is a sign of things to come. Rounds of heavy rain will target the region for the week ahead, leading to an increased flood potential for the entire region.

Parts of the southeast have picked up well over and inch of rain on the day, with more coming through this evening. That may keep the local flooding issues going…

Colder winds blow in tonight and Monday and should bring a few snow showers and flurries. Temps will generally stay in the 30s for many areas.

The next system is much stronger with heavy rainfall likely. This may still start out as a wintry mix late Tuesday, before the heavy rain takes over. Here’s how the NAM sees it…

This is the first of two big systems ready to impact the weather through next weekend. The second one will also bring heavy rain with it…

The rainfall numbers from these two systems are alarming…

That fits into the region I’ve been highlighting for the greatest potential for flooding…

Significant flooding issues may very well develop over the next week, including along some of our rivers. Please stay alert to the forecast in the coming week.

I’ll see you for an update later tonight. Make it a good one and take care.
