A front will stall across the region from late Monday night through the end of the week. The front will interact with tropical humidity across the area to produce numerous rounds of showers and storms at times. Periods of locally heavy rain are likely and rainfall totals for the week will likely average 3 to 5 inches with higher amounts possible. If heavy rain consistently falls on the same areas, then flooding could develop.
