The coverage of heavy rain is temporarily decreasing.  Rain totals today have exceeded three inches in many areas, and some totals over the past three days are closing in on 10 inches.  We are in store for one more bout with heavy rain and stronger storms, with a target time of Tuesday morning between roughly midnight and midday.  Showers and thunderstorms overnight will be somewhat scattered, but have the potential to become strong to severe with isolated tornadoes.  By sunrise, a more-organized band of strong to severe storms will push through from west to east, containing occasional wind gusts that may cause local damage.  In the afternoon, the line will weaken as it leaves eastern counties.  A drying trend will begin, ending the heavy rain and flash flooding threat.  Temperatures will become progressively colder from midweek and beyond.  However, tonight, temperatures will hold steady around 60° before rising overnight to around 70°.  Maximum temperatures for Tuesday will be in the mid 70s before falling late in the afternoon.


Severe weather watches may be in effect for the early-morning hours.  Various flooding advisories and warning are currently in effect.
