Weatherwise, the strongest in the series of storm will start our work week. Rain, heavy at times today to heavy rain and strong storms overnight into tomorrow will highlight the appreciable weather.

Rain totals will average another 4 to 6 inches. However higher totals are possible.

Flash Flooding is possible. Severe threat will lie mostly in damaging winds, but an isolated Tornado cannot be ruled out.

Drier weather finally returns and should last for the rest of the work week.
