Russell’s First Alert Forecast: Spotty showers this evening, turning to a steady rain overnight.
Locally heavy downpours are possible
GREENVILLE, N.C. (WITN) - A First Alert Weather Day is active for this evening and overnight as a complex low pressure system begins to approach portions of Eastern NC tonight. Southern portions of the Crystal Coast may initially see sprinkles before a steadier rain moves in after midnight. The bulk of the heaviest rain is likely to occur prior to sunrise
Most spots Saturday night into Sunday will leave us with around 1-3″ by the time it wraps up. Heavy rain, windy conditions, and a few rumbles of thunder are possible. Watch for standing water and ponding on the roadways. Rain gets lighter throughout the day and there could be a few breaks near Sunday evening. More showers will wrap around the low Sunday night keeping things wet, but not really adding big totals to our rainfall.
A few leftover drops will exit around sunrise Monday with clearing skies over the second half of Monday. Valentine’s Day is approaching with sunny weather and slightly warmer-than-average temperatures. So if you have any outdoor day/night plans, keep ‘em. There will be another weak system that could bring a few drops to the area on Wednesday and slowly increasing rain chances for the rest of the week.
