FIRST ALERT WEATHER DAY: Heaviest rain expected to fall Sunday
A partly sunny and hot Saturday will turn cooler and stormy as a front enters the area
GREENVILLE, N.C. (WITN) - We’ve seen a few storms develop today, but for those who feel short changed by the spotty rain, heavier downpours are on the way. The same system that lead to extensive and severe flooding in Kentucky will be creating heavier showers as we wrap up the weekend. While we too could experience some flooding of our own, there are some differences that should keep us away from the worst this system has to offer.
The frontal boundary will be making a faster pass over the East than what Kentucky experienced. The front stalled over the Ohio River Valley for about five straight days. It will take less than three days for the front to clear the East. We will see the chance for heavy rain increase tomorrow, however the shorter exposure to downpours and our current rain deficit for the year should help reduce our flooding potential. The rain will exit Monday as the front slides offshore.
