"Your going to want to keep your umbrella handy," she said. "But, thankfully, we're dealing with mainly light rain right now."

Campbell said there shouldn't be any widespread storms overnight, but a rumble of thunder could not be completely ruled out.

On Sunday night, some Wake County parents received word that bus routes may be delayed on Monday morning due to the flooding.

"Please be aware that your child's bus route may be delayed tomorrow, June 10, due to flooding in parts of the county," the message said.

According to Campbell, things could stay soggy until Thursday or Friday.

"This system is stuck," she said. "We won't improve until later in the work week."

Scattered storms and showers are likely all day Monday, with a 60 percent chance of precipitation lingering.
