When It Rains, It Pours

The Deep South is in line for drenching rain and possible flooding.

Heavy rain already fell through central Texas, and wet weather is pushing into eastern Texas.

Today, the rainstorm will enter the central Gulf Coast region, then move on to the Southeast tonight and Saturday.

Rainfall from the storm will range from 1 to 3 inches, certainly enough to cause local flash flooding.

In addition to heavy rain, there is concern for isolated heavy thunderstorms that could produce wind gusts over 60 miles per hour.

No widespread severe weather outbreak is expected, however.
