ALG Connect: Winter Storm Bringing Snow to Northeast and Heavy Rain for the South

Winter Storm Bringing Snow, Ice to Great Lakes, Northeast. Southern Heavy Rain Could Produce Flooding While Also Bringing Drought Help

The latest winter storm that is moving across the country has brought quite a bit of ice which is going to continue to be a threat along with snow from Iowa into Illinois, Michigan and to the northeast.

The National Weather Service has issued flood watches from eastern Texas into the lower Mississippi Valley and northern and central Alabama. This means flooding is possible in these areas over the next couple of days.

Tuesday-Tuesday Night: Eastern Texas into the lower Mississippi Valley could see enough rainfall to cause flooding. Rainfall rates of 1 to 2 inches per hour are possible in spots.

Wednesday-Wednesday Night: Heavy rain is possible from southeast Texas and lower Mississippi Valley into the Tennessee Valley. Flooding is possible even though many parts of these regions are in various levels of drought.

Thursday-Friday: The potential for heavy rain and flash flooding might shift farther east from southeast Louisiana and the Florida Panhandle northeastward into northern Georgia and Alabama and the southern Appalachians.

This weekend: Another wave of heavy rain could spread across the South, prolonging the wet pattern across the region.
