Tuesday will be a soggy day with showers and storms possible at any point during the day. As tropical humidity returns to the region, some of the showers and storms could produce locally heavy rain at times and could result in areas of minor flooding. Temperatures will be held down by clouds and rain with afternoon temperatures only around 80.

The active weather pattern will continue through the end of the week with numerous rounds of showers and storms likely at times. Once again, the rain could be heavy at times. Areas that are hit with repeated heavy downpours could see additional minor flooding develop. Temperatures Wednesday through Friday will remain below normal with afternoon high temperatures in the lower 80s.

Rainfall totals through Saturday will average 3 to 5 inches along the coast and 1 to 3 inches inland. Locally higher amounts of up to 6 inches will be possible. Areas just off shore and in eastern North Carolina may see as much as 8 to 10 inches of rain through the week.

3-5 inches of rain is likely this week.
