Rain will continue to fall heavy at times tonight before tapering to showers tomorrow. We’ll have another 1-3″ of rainfall and a flood warning remains in effect for most of the region with exception of the far northern counties, but there is a flood watch in effect for those areas and many locations will be upgraded to warnings. Remember if you run into a flooded roadway, turn around and don’t drown. We’ll also have areas of dense fog so that combined with flooded roadways are going to make travel difficult in the region. Temperatures tonight will hold steady, if not rise a little through the overnight hours. Rain will taper to showers Monday. We will remain rather cloudy with areas of fog. Temperatures on Monday will rebound into the middle to upper 60s.
This system will lift out and the chance for any rainfall seems minimal for Tuesday. We’ll have a mix of clouds and sunshine Tuesday with highs in the middle to upper 60s. Wednesday will be even warmer with a mix of clouds and sunshine though thicker clouds and the chance for some rainfall approaching from the south. Highs on Wednesday will be in the 70s to near 80. What happens after Wednesday will really depend on Hurricane Florence. This storm system will be moving to the Carolina Coastline later Thursday. Right now it looks like Thursday will be mostly cloudy and a bit breezy with some rain and drizzle. We will have a better chance for some rainfall Friday into the weekend if moisture from Florence comes farther to the north. As of now it seems like Florence will stay to our south but that is something that we will continue to watch as time gets closer.
