Sunday's Rain; More Rain Today

Localized heavy downpours from showers and thunderstorms Sunday afternoon and evening did cause some isolated flooding problems. As much as 3.28" of rain was reported at Capital Blvd. and Highwoods Sunday. 2.4" of that rain came during a one hour time period between 6:45pm and 7:45pm. Other areas of Raleigh didn't see quite as much rain -- 1.77" was reported at the National Weather Service Office on NC State's Centennial Campus and 1.16" was reported at RDU.

Showers and thunderstorms will continue off and on today with some localized heavy downpours possible once again. If we see those heavy downpours over locations that saw heavy rain yesterday, we could again see some isolated flooding issues. There is also a slight chance for a strong storm or two this afternoon. As of this morning, the Storm Prediction Center had placed much of the eastern Carolinas under a slight risk for severe weather.

Stay tuned to News 14 Carolina for Weather on the Ones updates through the day....
