Three separate storms are gearing up to push across the East Coast this week, bringing spurts of torrential rain to a large area of the eastern U.S. Here is what you need to know about the timing of these Eastern US storm systems in the coming days.

First Eastern US Storm System Already Tracking Up the Coast

It is going to be a soggy first week of March for much of the eastern half of the country as three different weather makers take aim at the region. The storms will produce a number of travel disruptions as well as flash flooding concerns. Despite mild temperatures, the amount of rain will wreak havoc on outdoor plans heading into the weather this weekend.

Widespread rainfall amounts of 2 to 4 inches are on tap for the area located to the east of the central Appalachians and across to the mid-Atlantic coastline and up into the central and southeastern portions of New England. You can expect this rain to fall in sporadic periods through the end of the weekend.

Over the same time period, the southeastern U.S. could see rainfall amounts up to 6 inches.

The action got started late Monday across the mid-Atlantic coast. Tuesday rain will continue to chug up the coastline and soak much of the Northeast and New England throughout the day.

For instance, it will be a wet Tuesday morning commute for New York City. The Big Apple is forecast to see rainfall of about a half of an inch along with winds out of the northeast at 10 to 15 mph.

The cloud cover will work to cool things off from the unseasonable warmth over the weekend with highs topping out at the 50-degree mark.
