A rumble of thunder was heard in some places Monday as temperatures stayed mainly in the 60s.

In the northern and western parts of the state, heavy rain and wind prompted the National Weather Service to issue flood warnings and flood watches. Some parts of the region have received up to 5 inches of rain.

The large slow-moving system will continue to affect much of the state until Wednesday.

After the system departs to the east, we should see more sunshine on Thursday and Friday, boosting readings up to near 80 degrees on Thursday afternoon and into the 80s on Friday.

However, spotty pop-up afternoon thunderstorms cannot be ruled out on either day, but nearly all of the time on Thursday and Friday will be rain-free.

Looking ahead to the weekend, the weather will remain warm and become more humid, making for a greater chance of scattered showers and thunderstorms each day.
