Heavy Rains and Associated Flooding Across the Plains This Weekend

A slow-moving weather system with abundant moisture will bring heavy rainfall across portions of the Central and Southern Plains Saturday. Soils in the region are already saturated from recent rainfall, so flash flooding and river flooding is likely. Meanwhile, below normal temperatures settle over the northeast, with freeze warnings across much of New England into Saturday.
