Storms will become for widespread on Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday.
While we haven’t seen significant widespread rainfall since the end of May, nuisance flooding threat will increase throughout the week with several inches of rain possible throughout the week.
Currently, this does not look like a significant flood event, but we could see this area of low pressure linger through much of the week. At this point, it is too early to know the exact rainfall totals.
