Flooding Concerns From the Plains to the Ohio Valley
A slow moving storm system will produce numerous showers and thunderstorms to start this week from the Ohio Valley into the Plains. Flood Watches have already been issued from Illinois to Oklahoma. The excessive rain outlook today has an area from Indiana to Texas that could see rainfall amounts exceeding flash flood guidance. 1″ to 3″ of rain is possible into Tuesday morning.
Flooding concerns continue for Tuesday and Wednesday as the storm system slowly sinks to the south. With storms expected to develop and track over similar areas, the flooding threat is increased. Dew points levels will remain high in the atmosphere with higher humidity streaming into the region from the Gulf of Mexico. Rainfall totals may exceed 5″ in some areas through Wednesday.
