Heavy Rain Creating a Flooding Threat in the Southeast

14 Jan 2020, 11:00 am

Pockets of heavy rain have been falling with a stalled front in the Southeast over the last several days. Some areas have seen more than 3″. The persistent rain has created a threat for flooding in areas with over-saturated soils.

Flash Flood Watches extend across portions of six states in the Southeast. Isolated storms, some severe, will produce rainfall totals in excess of 3″.

A persistent flow of high humidity from the Gulf of Mexico continues across the Southeast. As weak upper level Jet Stream energy moves over the stationary front, more storms will develop.

WeatherNation will keep you up to date on-air and online with the latest flooding and severe weather potential in the Southeast.
