A wintry mix before another flood threat

Good Sunday to one and all. We have a bit of a wintry mix moving in today, but it’s the heavy rain behind it that will wind up stealing the show. Several inches of rain may fall through Tuesday, leading to an increased threat for flooding.

Today’s wintry mix will be in the form of freezing rain, rain and a touch of snow. It’s the freezing rain that may put a little icy glaze on area roads. That would be enough to cause travel issues to develop, so keep that in mind if you’re on the roads. Here’s regional radar to track the early day mix:

Rounds of heavy rain kick this afternoon and will continue through Tuesday. Flood Watches are out for many areas during this time:

The entire state is at risk of seeing flooding during this time. I’m becoming more concerned for the potential for fairly widespread flooding problems developing later Monday into Tuesday. I’m upping the rainfall possibilities during this time:

Our creeks, streams and rivers are already running very high, so it’s not going to take much water to cause flooding issues to develop. If you have interests along our rivers, just know there is an increased threat for flooding in the days ahead.

Much colder air comes in behind this system late Tuesday into Tuesday night, leading to the possibility of some wraparound snows:

The next system arrives by the end of the week with another round of heavy rain then the chance for some snow. That unleashes the cold behind it:
