First Alert Forecast: Periods of heavy rain continue for Sunday Evening

First Alert Days posted for Sunday due to periods of heavy rain and thunderstorms

Kevin Arnone's evening forecast

Tropical air continues to push into the Southeast region this weekend into at least Wednesday. This will bring high chances for rain for the weekend into early next week. Along with the periods of heavy rain come the risk for strong to severe thunderstorms as well. Localized flooding will be a concern again Sunday as we could see several inches of rain in a short period of time.

Clouds and rain will hold the temperatures down into the 80s over the next several days. The pattern will start to dry out by late next week as temperatures will start to climb back into the upper 80s to near 90 which is seasonable for this time for the year.

The biggest concerns for storms today and tomorrow will be heavy rain, gusty winds and lightning.

- First Alert Day for Sunday for periods of very heavy rain, possible flooding, gusty winds and lightning.

- We’re expecting another 2-4 inches of rain by Wednesday.

- Highs will continue to be in the low to mid 80s.

- Drier by the end of next week
