More Rain in Store For the Northeast

The worst weather along the United States east coast into early this week will be across eastern North Carolina.
Steady bands of rain will continue to move from south to north across the same areas over the next day or so in eastern North Carolina.
Many cities have already picked up nearly 3 inches of rain over the last 2 days, including 2.86" in Hatteras, NC. Another 1-3 inches of rain is likely from Emerald Isle to Elizabeth city and points eastward through Tuesday.
Isolated amounts of over 6 inches are not out of the question. This type of rainfall can lead to poor-drainage area and street flooding, while causing small streams to rapidly rise.
Rainfall in the Northeast
The flooding rains that drenched much of the northeast late last week have only further saturated the ground.
While only scattered showers will be found throughout most of the Northeast through Monday, a more widespread rain event will come Monday night through Thursday for the Northeast.
The rain will not be steady over this three day period, like we saw back earlier this year, but periods of rain or showers are likely.
Some of the rain can be heavy at times, which may lead to localized flash flooding.
With the ground already being so saturated from the excessive rainfall over the last two months, and most recently late last week, it will not take much to renew the flooding, especially in typical flood-prone locations.
