Potential for Flooding Rains in the Middle Atlantic States
24 Jul 2018 9:27 AM
Flooding is possible in parts of the Eastern Seaboard as a slow moving storm system will produce rounds of heavy rain throughout the week. Flash Flood Watches continue from New York to South Carolina through Wednesday. Several inches of rain are possible through the week, especially in the Middle Atlantic states.
A stalled front will stream high humidity northward from the Gulf of Mexico and Atlantic Ocean. As a second cold front approaches the area from the west, showers and thunderstorms will form. Slow moving storms may pass over similar areas, increasing the chance for flooding.
With a deep trough digging in the atmosphere across the East, the wet pattern will extend throughout the week and may continue into next week. More than 5" of rain may fall in some areas.
