Rain Overspreads the Region Tonight into Sunday

Clouds will increase and rain will develop later tonight into tomorrow. Some of the rain could be heavy in spots, as well as some isolated severe storms. The timing will be the wee hours of tomorrow morning and the rain should last well into tomorrow night.

See the map below for how much rain is expected to fall for your area:

AREA A: Rain totals are expected to be a tenth of an inch 0.10 to a half inch 0.5
AREA B: Rain totals are expected to be anywhere from a half inch 0.5 to two inches 2.0
AREA C: Rain totals are expected to be greater than 2 inches. Some areas could locally receive up to 4 inches, maybe more.

Sunday will not be a good day for travel, as rain on the roads here causes accidents and traffic backups. There will be football playoffs, so it might be wise to just stay indoors to watch.

Also, there could be an outside chances of some severe storms, with the main threats being damaging winds. This threat should be limited to coastal SC and GA.

There is still no winter in sight, other than perhaps two days around the 27th where temperatures will drop down to normal winter. But then things will warm right back up. This is not a great winter for snow lovers. It seems the Christmas cold wave was the only winter we received so far.
