Damaging winds, rain possible as powerful system moves into region


blankThe National Weather Service says “multiple threats” can be expected over the next 24 hours

High winds, severe weather, heavy rainfall, and even coastal flooding on the Chesapeake are possible as stormy weather moves into the region.

Damaging winds, with large hail and even an isolated tornado, are possible Monday.

The weather office in Mount Holly, NJ reported a deepening low-pressure system is expected to move northward through the Great Lakes region Sunday night through Monday bringing strong winds and heavy rainfall.

Wind gusts of at least 40-50 miles an hour are expected overnight Sunday night into Monday.

The system will also bring one to two inches of rain. While that amount shouldn’t be enough to result in any significant flooding, the area could see urban, small stream, and drainage-related flooding issues, the Weather Service stated.

Weather in Delaware can be violent this time of year.
