A slow moving storm system continues to bring heavy rain from the Mississippi River, through the Plains, to the Red River of the South. Flash Flood Watches remain in effect from Illinois to Oklahoma. Several inches of rain is likely, with isolated areas possibly seeing as much as 6" of rain. A cold front is stretched out from the Great Lakes to the southern Plains with high humidity streaming along it. With the tropical air present, showers and thunderstorms are able to produce high rainfall totals in a short amount of time. With the overall wind pattern light, storms move slowly and track over similar areas repeatedly, leading to the flooding threat. Over saturated souls further exacerbate the situation.
