The Triangle should get another day to dry out from the weekend's downpours, but forecasters say Tuesday could bring showers and perhaps more thunderstorms.
If the storms do form, they should move through the region rather than stalling and dropping heavy rain the way Saturday night’s storms did, the National Weather Service said Monday morning.
The forecast put the likelihood of rain Tuesday at about 60 percent.
A hazardous weather analysis said any flooding should be limited to urban areas that usually flood and to small streams.

Forecasters said they thought that wind in the storms could be a bigger problem, though they did not say how strong those might be.
The week should then turn sunny, so much so that temperatures Saturday and Sunday are forecast to be in the upper 90s with heat indexes over 100.
In Johnston County on Monday, the Neuse River remained above flood stage at Smithfield and Clayton from the weekend storms, the weather service reported.
At Smithfield at 4:15 a.m., it was at 16.5 feet, 18 inches over flood stage. At Clayton, where the flood stage is 9 feet, it was at 11.1 feet.
The Neuse was expected to drop below flood stage at Clayton later Monday morning, although it was forecast to get up to 17 feet at Smithfield before receding.
