Heavy rain, thunderstorms expected along the East Coast on Monday
Heavy rain could lead to flash flooding in some spots, especially urban areas, according to the NWS
Some heavy rain and thunderstorms are possible along the East Coast on Monday as a cold front that has been making its way across the country moves through the region.
HOW TO WATCH FOX WEATHER ON TV
When the cold front finally exits the coast later on Monday afternoon and into the evening, that will usher in some cooler air after a few days of above-average temperatures.
Most areas will see sunshine to start the day, but as the heating of the day continues, we're expecting more clouds to pop up as rain and storms move through.
HOW HEAVY IS IT REALLY GOING TO RAIN?
The showers and storms will be more widespread by around 3 p.m. from northern New England south through Boston, Providence, Rhode Island, Hartford, Connecticut, New York City, Philadelphia and Washington.
FOX Weather forecasters aren't expecting any of the storms to become severe, but the National Weather Service warns storms that do pop up, will bring the possibility of heavy rain, frequent lightning and some strong winds gusts.
WHY IT RAINED WHEN YOUR WEATHER APP SAID THERE WAS ONLY A 20% CHANCE OF PRECIPITATION
The threat of heavy rain and thunderstorms isn't just localized to the Northeast and New England.
The chance for heavier rain and storms extends from that region into the Southeast and Gulf Coast.
