According to the National Hurricane Center, the system will likely bring heavy rain and flooding to parts of the southeastern U.S. starting Friday. Chances for rain return Sunday, June 20, as tropical rain forming in the Gulf of Mexico moves into the Southeast.
Parts of the central Gulf Coast will likely see 4 to 8 inches of rain with isolated areas seeing up to 12 inches. There is currently a high chance of rain in our area with temperatures reaching 77 degrees.
