In these areas damaging wind, hail and isolated tornadoes are especially possible, but storms could stretch from the United States borders' of Canada to Mexico. Heavy Rain for the Mid-Atlantic  Flooding alerts have been issued across the much of the Mid-Atlantic and into parts of the Carolina's due to very heavy rain that's expected across the region over the next two days at least days. These alerts are scheduled to stay active through Friday, but cloud lingers longer as rain showers and storms are likely through the next several days. Florida Rain Threat Lingers Tropical moisture continues to flow across parts of the Southeast. This pattern will keep rain showers and thunderstorms in the forecast, with the greatest threat for heavy rain and storms in place for Florida during the daytime hours, with dissipation at night due to diurnal heating, or heating from the sun during the daytime.
