North calms down while storms pop up elsewhere


(NewsNation) — The threat of flooding remained for Kentuckians on Monday and Tuesday with more rainfall expected across the state.

The state, which has already been swamped by a historic amount of rain, is forecast to get up to another 4 inches in certain areas through Tuesday, according to forecasts by NewsNation meteorologist Gerard Jebaily.

Flooding that began last week has killed 35 people so far, with the death toll expected to rise over the coming weeks.

In other areas of the country, tranquil conditions were expected Monday in an area stretching from the Great Lakes region to New England with the exception of a few morning showers.

Farther south, thunderstorms are forecast to drench a swath from northern Arkansas through Virginia.

At the same time, strong thunderstorms were expected to impact areas from Michigan through Illinois, and westward into northeastern Missouri.

Showers and thunderstorms will begin to stray farther inland across Louisiana, Mississippi and Alabama.

Monsoon thunderstorm activity remains widespread across the Southwestern states, including parts of California, bringing the risk of flash flooding amid the heaviest downpours.

Interior portions of the Northwest can expect to sizzle before cooler air begins to push farther inland during midweek.

It’s the first day of August, and the tropics are still quiet. No areas of development are reported, and nothing is under scrutiny.
