We need the rain and it's finally coming! How much longer is it in the forecast...? Read on in today's blog.

Tuesday will likely be the best day for us to see more measurable rain (after Monday's wonderful slow, steady rain). An upper level disturbance moving through the Ohio Valley with stir up the atmosphere and spark showers and thunderstorms ahead of the system and within the system itself.

Some areas have been dealing with flash flooding because of heavy rains associated with the upper level disturbance. The primary threats this evening are damaging winds and heavy rains from strong storms. However, the possibility of flash floods are low, as the National Weather Service has not issued a flash flood watch.

A weak cold front moves through Wednesday morning, bringing a few more showers to the Valley before making its way to the coast. The boundary stalls in southern Virginia for a while, keeping some showers along the coastline.

We may see an isolated shower or storm Wednesday, but the best chance of measurable rain is Tuesday. Slight storm chances linger through Thursday and Friday, with a cold front skirting the area on Saturday. It doesn't quite cross the region, therefore the hot and humid weather looks to stay with us through the middle of next week.
