Big Weather Don Schwenneker said that up to three inches of rain have fallen in this area.
This prolonged weather pattern will remain in place across Central North Carolina over the next several days due to a broad upper-level area of low pressure that stalled out over the eastern third of the nation.
Any rain that gets going will have enough moisture available in the atmosphere to put down a heavy amount.
A flash flood watch will also be in effect through Tuesday night for much of the viewing area, including Chatham, Cumberland, Durham; Wake and other counties.
Flash Flood WATCH remains in effect until Tuesday night for almost the entire viewing area. Rainfall amounts of 2-4" are expected, w/ possibly 5" in spots. #TurnAroundDontDrown pic.twitter.com/D3MzufD7l6— Don Schwenneker (@BigweatherABC11) July 23, 2018
Additionally, there is a marginal risk of severe storms Monday afternoon, with the biggest threat coming from wind damage.
No tropical storms are expected to form in the next 48 hours.
Rain chances will lower Thursday and especially Friday, but still some storms around in the afternoon. More typical summer weather, highs back near 90.
