A batch of drenching rain capable of producing isolated flash flooding will affect part of the East Coast into Tuesday.
The combination of tropical moisture and a disturbance moving along a frontal zone are responsible for the rainfall.
According to AccuWeather Hurricane Expert Dan Kottlowski, “The feature is not likely develop into a tropical system due to interaction with land and strong, disruptive winds above the surface over the next couple of days.”
Instead, rounds of heavy rain and flooding downpours will creep northward from the Carolinas to coastal areas of the mid-Atlantic, before turning out to sea and avoiding much of New England. Highs will generally be in the 70s to near 80 from the Carolinas to Maine through Tuesday.
