The flooding threat continues from the Plains into the Ohio and Mississippi Valleys over the next few days. Flood Watches remain in effect from Indiana to Texas. Some areas may see up to 7" of rain through Thursday as a rich feed of humidity continues to flow into the region from the Gulf of Mexico. A slow moving front will be the focus for storms, providing energy to sustain their growth and production. The excessive rainfall forecasts from NOAA's Weather Prediction Center shows a moderate potential for flooding today from southern Missouri to the Arklatex. That area shifts slighly to the south and east Wednesday to include parts of Louisiana and Mississippi. A slight risk for flooding extend from the Ohio Valley to the Tennessee and Mississippi Valleys today through Thursday. A cold front stretches from the Great Lakes into the southern Plains. Showers and thunderstorms will continue to fire along the front. As storm develop and travel over the same areas, the ground may become over saturated which could produce flooding. The front will slowly slide to the southeast through Thursday. For WeatherNation: Meteorologist Mace Michaels
