Nate is long gone, but rain stays in the forecast through Tuesday

Tropical Depression Nate has left the Tennessee Valley and it is quickly moving towards the northeastern states.

Although the showers are ending Sunday night into early Monday morning, we will not be drying out any time soon.

More rain on the way:  

You can feel that thick, tropical humidity that Nate drew into the region, and that moisture serves to bring more showers and storms on Monday and Tuesday.

Some locally-heavy rainfall is likely with another wave of scattered storms Monday night through Tuesday morning in particular.

Individual storms may drop as much as 2-3 inches of rain on top of the soaking that most of us already got with Nate’s track across the state.  Since that rain will be unevenly scattered, a flood threat is not immediately clear for any single spot.

A cool front passes Wednesday ending the scattered, hit-or-miss, uneven rainfall; drier air follows it, but we see no really “cool” air for this area anytime soon.
