...Heavy Rain Possible Mid Week...

A developing storm system will bring a daily return chance of
precipitation as early as late tonight, which will spread across
the area during the day Tuesday. This will include a chance of
thunderstorms with heavy rain potential as early as Tuesday
afternoon, spreading across the area Tuesday night.

As storms develop, move in and across the area Tuesday night into
Wednesday, influencing features that will maximize rainfall
potential evolve heading into and through the day on Wednesday.
Some storms may repeat locally heavy rains over the same areas,
and with 1 to 2 inches of storm total rainfall expected on average,
we could see some minor flooding issues or encounter briefly
inundated roadways or low passage areas, especially if higher
localized totals are realized.

Take precautions now in case there is a change to the forecast
with additional rainfall amounts. Remember flood safety tips like
never driving across a flooded roadway, and slowing down so you
can be sure to have plenty of stopping distance and be visible to
fellow travelers on roadways.
