Active Pattern Lingers Sunday In The Mid-Atlantic

31 Jul 2022, 2:30 am

It’s been an active week through the Ohio Valley and Appalachia, with only a couple of dry days. Unfortunately heavy rain returns to the forecast for hard-hit areas this week. Huntington, West Virginia also broke a daily rainfall record Sunday (ABOVE).

 Flood Threat

Heavy rain is likely through Monday morning along a stationary boundary, which continues the flood threat through Appalachia, the Mid-Atlantic and Southeast. That comes from a combination of already saturated soils or ongoing flooding, and high rain rates.

In fact, Flood Alerts are in place for Kentucky Sunday and Monday in anticipation of more flooding from additional heavy rain.

Forecast Timing

We can also see with the latest forecast that heavy rain is back in the forecast for Kentucky and Tennessee.
