The danger of flooding will be on the rise this week across the Southeast as rounds of rain drench the region.
People from Texas to the Carolinas may find their best friends to be their umbrella, raincoat and rain boots this week as rain and thunderstorms soak the region each day through at least Friday.
Some locations could pick up over a foot of rain before the end of the week. This is in addition to all the rain that fell over the weekend.
The daily rounds of rain will cause many different impacts across the region, ranging from significant flooding to interruptions in daily routines.
“Folks with plans that involve being outside may want to cancel and reschedule them for another date,” said AccuWeather.com Meteorologist Jordan Root.
Root added, “baseball games will have a high risk of being rained out across this area.”
Travel delays are also likely as downpours can result in slowed traffic and thunderstorms could lead to delays at the airports.
