As the storm gets close Tuesday strong winds develop, easterly winds 15 to 30 mph. Isolated showers are possible Tuesday, but the main rain time is Tuesday night, Wednesday, and Thursday morning. It’s too early to talk about rain accumulations, but some heavier rains are possible, which means ponding on roads is also possible. We’ll track this storm closely as it approaches.
