A stuck upper-level low pressure system will sustain medium to high chances for storms through midweek.

A severe-weather warning across part of Florida was extended south to Broward County on Monday, as the National Weather Service warned that things could get windy, hot and wet. The story of a catastrophic flood - a metaphor for a cleansing of humanity's sins - appears in many cultures, from ancient Mesopotamia to China, to Maya peoples and aboriginal tribes in Australia.

Theodore predicts most of the severe activity will stay east of Interstate 95 through the evening.

- A chance for severe storms, isolated flooding and wind damage will remain in effect for central North Carolina until Wednesday, according to WRAL meteorologist Aimee Wilmoth.

Until then, Ricketts said to expect rain chances daily. Wind could be the biggest threat from storms over the plains, and areas that have had flooding recently could also see brief flooding tonight.

Coverage-wise, the next 24 hours will be similar to the last 24 hours, with hit and miss showers and storms scattered about Pennsylvania and New Jersey, although with a focus on Pennsylvania. Temperatures are in the lower 80s Monday with showers likely. The silver lining to today is that daytime highs will only reach the low 80s.

Motorists who encounter flooded roads should turn around, as most flood deaths occur in vehicles.

Flooding conditions have suspended MTA service from Patapsco to Cromwell and BWI Thurgood Marshall Airport stations.

As of 4:00 p.m., more than 4,000 customers are without power in the D.C. area.

Power companies have been working throughout the night to restore power to affected homes.
