First Warning Forecast: Tracking rain, wind and flooding this week

Meteorologist April Loveland's First Warning Forecast

We say goodbye to Tropical Storm Arthur, but not to the rain and wind.

Temperatures will dip into the upper 50s overnight with a chance of showers.

A pesky area of low pressure will settle in over the Southeast and will linger for a couple days. This means several days of rain, wind and possible flooding. Coastal and tidal flooding will be possible especially late Tuesday and Wednesday. Expect breezy conditions with highs in the low and mid 60s on Tuesday. Rain will move in during the afternoon.

Temperatures will also trend below normal in the 60s through Thursday. We'll warm to near 70 on Thursday with showers. Warmer to end the week with highs in the upper 70s, but you guessed it, more rain. Drier weather will move in by Sunday.

Get ready for a wet and gloomy week.

Tropical Update

Arthur is moving toward the ENE near 15 mph, and this motion is forecast to continue tonight. A turn toward the east is expected on Tuesday. A slower motion toward the southeast or south-southeast is expected to begin Tuesday night and continue through Wednesday. On the forecast track, the center of Arthur will continue to move out to sea away from the east coast of the United States.
