Triad -- There is a Flash Flood Watch in effect for Wilkes, Yadkin, Alleghany, Stokes, Surry, Carroll, Patrick and Henry Counties until 9:00 PM on Tuesday.
There is a low pressure system moving up from the Deep South and that will bring rain chances to the Triad through Wednesday.
The very front edge of the rain has moved into the Piedmont. It will last through the night with heavier pockets at times. Lows will be mild as they only fall to the low 60s.
Monday will be cloudy and wet. Rain is likely at any time during the day with the possibility of a thunderstorm in the afternoon as a warm front moves though. Highs will make it to the low 70s.
The low will make very slow progress over the next two days. That means the rain chance will last into Tuesday. Coverage shouldn't be as widespread but there is still a 50% chance with highs in the upper 70s.
The end of the rain chances will come on Wednesday as the storm exits the region. There is only a 20% chance of a shower with highs in the upper 70s.
By the time all is said and done, there could be quite healthy rainfall totals. The heaviest rain should fall in the foothills, with some places picking up as much as 2-4". Everyone in the area could see 1-2".
The dry-out begins on Thursday and lasts through the weekend. Highs will be in the upper 70s to low 80s through Sunday.
