Heavy to excessive rainfall possible across a large part of Central U.S.


Heavy to excessive rainfall is possible across a large part of Central U.S. today and tonight, May 8 and 9, 2019, NWS WPC warns.

The most likely region is from the ArkLaTex into central Arkansas where WPC has a moderate risk. Remember when encountering flooded roads to turn around, don't drown!

A low pressure system currently stationed over the Central Plains will begin moving eastward as it produces heavy rain and thunderstorms for parts of the Central/Southern Plains and the eastern half of the CONUS tonight through Friday, May 10, 2019, NWS forecaster Kebede noted 19:55 UTC (15:55 EDT), May 8.

The cold front associated with this system will dip southeastward through northern Texas tonight and will interact with a plume of gulf moisture tomorrow leading to widespread heavy rainfall and thunderstorms over eastern Texas and much of the Southeast through Friday night.
