Happy Sunday! It has been a great day to play some board games or watch a movie as rain has been persistent all across the Tri-State. It doesn’t look like we’ll see a break until overnight and into Monday.

FLOOD WATCH until 8 a.m. Monday

A Flood Watch is in effect for all of the counties in the Tri-State until 8 a.m. Monday. Some areas have already seen 1 to 2 inches of rain and we could see an additional 1 to 2 inches by Monday morning. This means that flash flooding could be possible in some communities.

Risk for flooding today

Showers and storms will continue to roll through the Tri-State this evening and could produce some strong wind gusts, alongside that heavy rain. Some storms could produce winds of 40 to 50 mph as they roll through, but I don’t expect anything severe here in the Tri-State. That should keep our temperatures between 76 to 82 degrees this afternoon.

Overnight, a cold front will sweep through, producing some heavier showers and storms during the dark hours of Monday morning. That could lead to some more localized flooding as these storms roll through. Temperatures will stay into the low 70s in most spots.

TIMING:

Storms at 4pm
Storms at 7pm
Storms at 10pm
Storms at 1am

Rain will linger into the morning hours Monday, but with the front passing through we should see most of these showers and storms end by 9 to 10am. When all is said and done, some most areas in the Tri-State will have seen between 1 to 3 inches of rainfall. The rest of Monday will be partly cloudy as skies start to clear out to end the day.

Tuesday is trending dry, but also HOT, as our temperatures climb back into the low 90s. Add the humidity and most areas will feel like the mid to upper 90s. Wednesday will be even hotter with the heat index between 100 and 105 degrees. We will likely see a Heat Advisory. A cold front on Wednesday will bring some relief late in the day and into Thursday, but it may also bring our next chance at rain.
