Strong Storms to Bring Heavy Rain in the Deep South with Flooding Possible
The Pacific storm system that will bring snow and ice from the Plains to the Appalachians will also produce heavy rain and the potential for flooding in the Deep South. Flash Flood Watches have been issued from near the Mississippi River to north of Corpus Christi, Texas. Some areas may see more than 6″ of rain.
Isolated severe thunderstorms may develop throughout the day, mainly along the Texas coastline. The risk is marginal, with wind damage and an isolated tornado as the biggest threats.
As the low moves to the east on Saturday, the risk for severe storms shifts to the Louisiana, Mississippi, Alabama and Florida coastline. The lower Mississippi Valley may also see heavy rain and flooding.
