In addition to the severe weather threat, a major rain event is currently playing out over parts of Southern Florida thanks to a stalled trough in the area, and the rain will continue straight through Tuesday. Some areas have already seen 2-4" of rain from this system, and up to 8"+ of rain are possible by the time the clouds break on Tuesday night/Wednesday. The below image is the Quantitative Precipitation Forecast from the HPC, showing the rainfall amounts forecast to fall over the next 5 days. In addition to the bullseye over southern Florida, there are two other areas expecting a good slug of rain over the next few days. The midsection of the country is expecting a good few inches of rain as the daily rounds of storms come through, and the Pacific Northwest could see a few inches of precipitation as a low pressure system makes its way ashore during the day on Monday.
