A moist and unstable air-mass will remain over the region on Sunday as a large upper level storm system organizes over the western United States. As this system approaches, thunderstorms will spread into the area on Monday ahead of a Pacific front with the threat for severe weather and heavy rainfall.

The severe threat will transition more towards a flooding threat into Tuesday as repeated rounds of heavy rain continue along the slow moving front. Widespread 2 to 3 inch rainfall totals are expected south of interstate 44 with locally higher amounts possible.
