Rain and storms continue in the South

Wet weather with scattered showers and thunderstorms is forecast to continue in the South today. A low-pressure system spinning over the Lower Mississippi River Valley is expected to continue pulling ample moisture and warm temperatures onshore from the Gulf of Mexico as it slowly moves northeast throughout the day.

This will produce a front that will linger over Georgia and Florida. Scattered showers will decrease across the Southern Plains and increase over the Tennessee Valley, stretching into the Mid-Atlantic states. Strong thunderstorms producing periods of heavy downpour are anticipated over Georgia and Florida border. Rainfall totals between 1 and 2 inches are expected in these areas, while most of the South will remain under widespread scattered showers with up to a half inch of rain.
