None of Monday’s storms is expected to be severe. However, localized flooding on area rivers is possible, as the ground is already saturated.
The rain is expected to taper off during the evening Hours. Tuesday looks to be sunny and warm with highs in the 60s. The mercury is expected to climb back into the 70s later in the week.
