Florence continues to dominate the weather headlines. It's much weaker now than it was when it made landfall late last week. Since then, the storm has gradually weakened and is now considered "post tropical". This means the storm has lost some of its characteristic features like a warm core and strongest winds near the surface. Here's a look at the rainfall expected to impact our region Monday night:

Most of the local rainfall comes from the northern side of this storm. The strom will swing northeast as a cold front moves through. The brunt of the heavy is expected to fall in or just south of the Mohawk Valley. Here's a look at the rainfall forecast for Monday night:

A flash flood watch is in effect for this event. There's a small chance that some areas see enough rain to cause localized flooding. The highest chance of this happening is in poor drainage areas and areas prone to flooding.

The rain is expected to make a quick exit Tuesday morning.
