Simon’s Moisture to Increase Flooding Risk in Central US

By Alex Sosnowski, Expert Senior Meteorologist

October 7, 2014

Tropical moisture from Simon may enhance rain and the flooding risk in part of the Central states this week, with some rain spilling into the mid-Atlantic.

Leftover tropical moisture from Simon will impact parts of the Southwest this week. However, moisture will be strung along farther to the east over time.

Over the southern Plains, a great temperature contrast will develop prior to the breakout of heavy rain and drenching thunderstorms.

Temperatures in parts of Texas, Kansas and Oklahoma may flirt with record high levels. Meanwhile, cooler-than-average conditions will hold farther north over the Plains. The temperature contrast will provide extra energy for the upcoming rainfall.
