Southern Storm Takes Shape Sunday

A Southeast Soaker is in store for late Sunday into Monday. There could be severe weather associated with this system, primarily in the Deep South such as Alabama, Florida, and Georgia. The chance will increase late Sunday night as the system begins to pull to the northeast. For everyone else, expect a soaky rain, which could be heavy at times. Windy conditions are expected along the coast, and a random spin-up can not be ruled out, especially farther south. Up to 6 inches of total rain is possible in spots (model rain amounts below).

Rain will overspread North and South Carolina late Sunday afternoon and into Sunday night. The rain looks to last into Monday morning, so expect travel delays and rush hour delays if you are working. As this storm system surges to the northeast, it will pull up warmer and more humid air over our region. We can expect a decent Christmas Eve as we should dry out, and a warm Christmas Day.

Below is the estimated radar for Sunday night.
