***Evening Update*** Rain continues to gradually overspread the region from southwest to northeast and will continue to do so through this evening. The rain could be heavy at times overnight and while we are not expecting any widespread, major problems, localized urban and small stream flooding could occur in a few spots. The heaviest rain tapers off Wednesday morning but some showers may return by afternoon. Thursday will feature a respite with sunshine and relatively warm temperatures before the next system could bring some more rain by Friday. In the longer range, the outlook heading into next week is for mainly dry and progressively warmer weather!

Severe weather awareness week continues. Today's topic is severe thunderstorms. The definition of a severe thunderstorm is hail of 1" in diameter or larger and/or winds of at least 58 mph. The best place to be in a severe thunderstorm is inside a building. If that isn't available, a second, but not as good, option is inside a vehicle (excluding convertibles).
