Extended forecast: Monday through Saturday:  Scattered thunderstorms will continue Monday through Wednesday. There is a Slight Risk of excessive rainfall throughout the Crossroads through Tuesday.

The National Hurricane Center is issuing advisories on Tropical Storm Danielle and Tropical Storm Earl.  Both storms are expected to move away from the U.S.

Mid low pressure will deepen into the state over the latter part of the weekend, bringing favorable upper-level support for showers and thunderstorms. This system, along with abundant tropical moisture and a quasi-stationary frontal boundary will contribute to scattered to numerous showers and thunderstorms through the middle of the week. Heavy rainfall remains the main concern.  There is a slight risk for excessive rainfall for Monday and Tuesday.  Flash flooding also remains a concern through mid-week, particularly for low-lying or poor drainage areas, and for areas that have saturated soils from previous rainfall. Daily chances for rain will continue through the end of the forecast period as available moisture remains high as another disturbance approaches the area. Temperatures through the long-term forecast period will be on the cooler side due to increased cloud cover and rainfall. Minor coastal flooding remains possible Monday and Tuesday as P-ETSS guidance continues to indicate tide levels exceeding 2.0 ft. MSL during times of high tide.-Scott
