WEATHER SUMMARY: A potent storm system is shaping up over the region today and will affect the area through Tuesday. Showers and thunderstorms will continue off and on through the period. Some of the rain will be heavy at times and with this system being a slow moving one, flooding concerns are increasing. A Flash Flood Watch will go into effect midnight tonight. While severe storms are not the main threat, they can’t be ruled out as well. The system will pull away from the area Tuesday with improving conditions later in the week.

Today: Showers and storms likely, some containing heavy downpours. Cloudy with highs in the mid  70s.

Monday: Cloudy and with rain likely, some of which could be heavy. A thunderstorm is also possible. Highs in the lower 70s.

Tuesday: More rain likely during the morning with decreasing chances later in the afternoon. Mostly cloudy with highs in the mid 70s.
