Localized flooding is possible Tuesday as heavy, scattered rain showers move slowly through the region.

Isolated flooding is possible throughout central North Carolina, but counties east of the Triangle are most at risk. Like Monday, rain could fall on and off all day, and downpours are possible at anytime.

For a second straight day, temperatures won’t get out of the 60s. Conditions will also be breezy Tuesday, with winds from the northeast up to 30 mph.

The rain isn’t going anywhere soon. A chance of rain is in the forecast each day through Sunday, and temperatures will be well below normal until the weekend.
