Update on the rain with potential flash flooding and the tropics with more storms to come!

- There will continue to be areas of locally heavy rain today with flash flooding in the Mid-Atlantic into southern New England, and Long Island will get in on the action today. While some areas on Long Island may only see an inch or so, some areas will get heavy downpours with flash flooding and the potential for more than 3 inches of rain, and the rain will continue into this evening before becoming more scattered towards and after midnight and into tomorrow. I have included some rainfall maps and future radar images below to give a GENERAL idea.

- We still have Hurricane Danielle heading out into the north Atlantic, and we have Tropical Storm Earl which will pass just east of Bermuda as a strong hurricane later this week. Tropical Storm Fiona may form this week and head towards the middle of the Atlantic, and then we have to watch potential for Gaston and Hermine next week.
