The 24 hour radar estimated totals through 5:30am are here:
We’ll see a break from the rain as we head into mid morning, but another round of light rain is possible this afternoon. A Flood Watch is still in effect until this afternoon:
Flood Warnings will stay in place this week until rivers go down:
Temps will be falling as we head into the afternoon, so the rain will transition into a wintry mix of sleet, freezing rain, and even snow. Up to 1″ of snow is possible. However, the big takeaway from the forecast is that slick spots will be likely.
Tonight temps fall into the teens, so any water on the roads could freeze creating a slick morning commute. The wintry mix /snow will come to an end this evening, and the clouds break as we head towards midnight.
Monday, the sun returns, but temps won’t rebound above the freezing mark.
As of right now, no significant rain or snow is expected this week, the 7 day forecast looks quiet and dry. It’s a chance for us to dry out.
