Flooding threat remains for South

Days of heavy rain across the South has led to widespread flooding, which has damaged roads and led to at least two deaths and several water rescues. The rain continues Friday, with the heaviest expected to stretch from Louisiana to Georgia. The stretch of soggy weather should come to an end this weekend, but not before severe weather marches across parts of the Southeast.

Sloppy storm to bring messy mix of weather to Northeast

Parts of the Northeast and New England are facing a weekend of weather that will feature a little bit of everything. Winter weather is possible for much of the region, but the highest accumulations of snow are expected in Massachusetts and New Hampshire by Monday. Otherwise, most places can expect rain. It could end as snow for New York City, but only minor accumulations are expected.
