Northeast: Rain on the Way

Monday Morning

In this video, we look at the nature of the rain event that is heading toward the Middle and North Atlantic states. As with other rain-producing systems this summer, this one is likely to include narrow bands of excessive rain capable of causing street flooding in a matter of minutes.

The following regional radar map shows that while there are not any large shields of steady rain, there are pockets and bands of rain and thunderstorms that contain heavy precipitation.
