Periods of heavy rain will also be possible which could lead to some localized flooding of poorly drained, flood-prone areas.

Additional rainfall amounts of 1 inch to 3 inches will be possible through Wednesday.

The positive side of the additional rain and clouds will be a break from the 90-degree weather. High temperatures Monday through Wednesday are currently forecast to stay in the mid-to-upper 80s.

Shower and t-storm potential will be highest during the afternoon hours each day, but we can’t totally rule out a few morning or night time rainmakers.

High pressure will build to close the week limiting rain chances as we move into the weekend.

A string of very hot and humid weather days will be ahead beginning Thursday and continuing through the weekend into the following work week.

Tropical Depression #5 remains in the Central Atlantic moving away from the U.S.

A broad area of low pressure just off our coast has been given a medium chance for tropical development over the next several days as it moves generally towards the Atlantic East Coast.
