A storm system tracking through the East tonight and Monday will drench areas from the Gulf Coast into the mid-Atlantic. A few severe thunderstorms are even possible during the day Monday across portions of the Southeast.
A zone from the eastern Florida Panhandle through south-central Pennsylvania will bear the brunt of the heaviest shower and thunderstorm activity. Rainfall totals through Monday night will be on the order of 2-4 inches, with locally higher amounts possible on the east side of the Appalachians.
Monday afternoon, another round of strong storms will erupt from the northeastern Florida Panhandle through southeastern Georgia and much of the eastern Carolinas. Torrential downpours could trigger flash flooding, while wind gusts past 40 mph at times will damage buildings and down trees and power lines.
Meanwhile, steady rain will advance into mid-Atlantic tonight as moisture surges northward from the Gulf of Mexico. Overnight, the rain will spread over much of southern New England, with a bit of rain reaching northward along the I-95 corridor as far as Boston.
The heaviest rain will douse the central Appalachians, through tonight, before targeting the mid-Atlantic and Northeast on Monday into Tuesday.
