Still Wet in the South

The once drought-stricken Southeast has transformed into a marsh due to as much as 14 inches of rainfall last week through Monday, but today will offer another 24 hours for many areas to begin drying out.

The bulk of the wet weather through this evening is expected to be well west of Georgia and northeastern Alabama, while parts of the Mississippi Valley face the threat of renewed flooding.

While most rainfall amounts today will generally run less than a half of an inch, it doesn't really help out much when the water is still rising in some areas.

Good news is on the horizon, as next week looks to begin with significant drying throughout the South.
