Today is an 'Alert Center Action Day' as rainfall totals continue to rise

COLUMBUS, GA (WTVM) - We're waking up to a wet radar this morning with showers for most around the Valley. The coverage of rain stays high through lunch time with just a few thunderstorms. Mostly just wet conditions causing rainfall totals to go up. This could cause flooding problems around the Valley today and tomorrow.

Rain chances lower slightly for this afternoon through Wednesday. Once last push of showers and storms moves through Wednesday afternoon. Both today and tomorrow have a low shot of seeing severe storms with gusty winds. The main severe weather threat remains to be flooding.

We'll start the process of drying out on Thursday with decreasing clouds through the day. Highs should stay in the 70s through Thursday. Highs will start a warming trend with mid to upper 80s back by Friday and through next week. Going into Sunday and Monday, look for increasing clouds and an increasing coverage of rain the second half of our Memorial Day weekend - the coverage should be 10-30%.

I hope you have a chance to tune in to the TV side for more on this rainy weather. We'll also be the first to alert you to changes for our Memorial Day weekend weather in our 9-day planner! You can also stream us LIVE on the weather app and follow Storm Team 9 on Facebook and Twitter.
