Thunderstorms dropped heavy weekend rain across Texas and Oklahoma. 

The same areas will see rain Monday. Some areas could see up to 3 inches more.

While areas in the system's warm sector see storms, other areas are being reminded that the book hasn't yet closed on winter.

Upwards of 2 feet of snow fell across the Northern Plains causing travel problems, especially along the I-90 corridor.


Strong thunderstorms are possible Monday from Texas across the Tennessee Valley to Lake Erie.

While severe weather might become less of a concern Monday, the threat of heavy rain will increase the potential for flooding from North Texas and eastern Oklahoma to the Ozarks and the mid-Mississippi and lower Ohio valleys.

Currently, the National Weather Service has flood advisories (in green) and Severe Thunderstorm Watches (yellow) in place.
