If an average storm typically leaves water in your basement, you might want to have some buckets ready Sunday. "All of the ingredients for heavy rain are coming together for much of the area," reads a report from the National Weather Service.

That volume could prove to be too much for streams and small rivers, which will be on flood watch into Monday morning.
