The Rain Continues NC 5-6-13

As expected, flooding has become an issue yesterday and today as heavy rains have soaked the region thanks to an upper level low over the Southeast.  Rainfall totals have exceeded what was expected.  The good news is that the afternoon will see a lull in the precipitation as we get into the dry slot of the system.  It's clearly visible on water vapor satellite imagery and it looks as if showers will completely move north of the region here shortly.

The upper low will move into northern Georgia today and then make a turn to the northeast tomorrow and Wednesday.  Showers redevelop tomorrow afternoon and will last into late Wednesday.  The heaviest rains with the system during this time period will be to our northeast, but with the heavy rain we've already seen it won't take much to create another round of flooding.

We'll finally dry out and warm up on Thursday once the low moves off to the northeast.  High temps will rise to normal  levels for this time of year but cloud cover will remain for the most part.

Friday sees temps bumped up a few notches from Thursday but precip chances return once again.  A warm and moist southerly wind flow ahead of our next system will see showers return during the late afternoon on Friday.  That system will move through over the weekend, meaning Saturday and Sunday will be wet.  Ugh.
