Much of the east is under a slight to marginal risk of severe weather for today. This is due to multiple fronts moving across the east coast. Rain will be very widespread throughout the day, especially during the afternoon and evening hours.
There is a risk for strong winds and tornado activity. Wind or wind gusts might reach up to 60 mph today.
The east has already seen exceptional amounts of rain for the past few days. The ground is very saturated. With the additional rain today, much of it will not be able to be absorbed into the ground, making flooding a big concern. Multiple flash flood watches are in effect today.
Over the next few days combined, many areas will receive anywhere from 3-7 inches of rain. Stay weather aware throughout the next few days!
