Today's weather map shows a blossoming system in the Gulf of Mexico that will impact the Southeast much of this week.
A low pressure system is developing over south Texas and it will slowly move northeast bringing with it rich moisture, resulting in rainfall for much of the Southeast over the next several days.
Forecasters monitoring this developing situation are concerned for flooding from the Texas Gulf Coast all the way northward through the Tennessee River Valley. Rainfall in this region could total more than 6 inches through the end of the week.
While rain is expected to pick up in the Carolinas as the week unfolds - and some of it may be heavy later in the week - flooding does not appear to be a major threat for Charlotte and the WBTV area.
