Happy Halloween


Expect ghosts, but a naughty boy named "El Niño" may have some effects, which could spoil Halloween trick-or-treating fun for little people. Two separate storm systems move throughout various national regions.

A storm system with abundant moisture will push into the lower Mississippi River Valley on Saturday and continue to bring a chance for excessive rainfall and flash flooding. Ongoing drought will help mitigate widespread major flooding on larger rivers, but many smaller tributaries could experience rapid rises. Some of these storms could also bring hail and damaging winds on Saturday.

..Severe thunderstorms possible for portions of eastern Texas and lower
Mississippi valley today...

...Flash flooding possible for the Gulf Coastal Plains and for the
southern Appalachian and Piedmont ranges Sunday...

...Heavy rain possible for the Mid-Atlantic on Monday...

...Heavy rain possible across portions of the Pacific Northwest...
