The threat of flash flooding caused by heavy rainfall continued Wednesday in the Southeast, the Gulf Coast, the Mississippi Valley, and the southern Plains. The National Weather Service reports that flash flooding could occur from the Gulf Coast to the lower Mississippi Valley.
There is a chance of excessive rain in central Mississippi, central Louisiana, and northwestern Alabama due to an organized storm complex. From January 24 to January 25, the Gulf Coast, southeast Kentucky, and southwest Virginia were at risk of flash flooding, said the N.W.S.
Meteorologists have cautioned that the Cleveland and Rochester areas of the U.S. are at risk of major flash flooding due to rivers and creeks rising. It was predicted that snow showers and freezing rain would extend into the Northeast on Wednesday, accompanied by light accumulations. With warmer air blowing across the mid-Atlantic, East Coast, and Midwest, snow will melt through Friday.
