LABOR DAY IS GOING TO BE A WET ONE… AN UNSETTLED WEATHER PATTERN MAY GO THROUGH MID-WEEK

A low pressure developing alont the NC coastline is likely to bring quite a bit of rain to SE VA and NE NC. This system has a lot of tropical moisture available to it so rain amounts could be quite heavy in some areas. I noticed that the NHC has this system in their low probability of becoming a tropical cyclone.  It is a slow moving system so forecasters believe that there may still be some rain around on Tuesday. Exactly where the cut-off of precipitation will be is hard to pinpoint but the further SE that you are, the more rain you will probably receive. Will there be flash flooding? The NWS as of this writing has not issued a Flash Flood Watch as they feel that although heavy amounts of rain will occur over the area from Monday through Tuesday, it shouldn’t fall heavy enough to bring small streams and rivers out of their banks. My advice would be to be very watchful of the flooding potential and monitor the NWS for any warnings that could be issued. Later in the week our rain chances should diminish but not totally until we get towards the weekend.
