    Heavy Rains the Main Focus the Next Seven Days and Beyond

    August 1, 2013; 9:53 AM ET


    The image below shows total rainfall through next Friday. I wanted to show you this because notice that Kansas is in the bulls-eye for heavy rains. Also notice the East Coast is also in an area of excessive rains that next seven days. In the video, I go into an explanation of the why I think we have to watch the flooding threat in the East as the trough becomes established in the Midwest. That opens a corridor of tropical moisture and potential tropical systems to come up the East coast and aggravate the flooding issues. I also notice that the operational models are going toward a more active tropics around Aug. 15 which goes with the prediction that the end of August is when we need to watch for a flooding threat.

    In Kansas, the heavy rains on the way, but we also need to watch for a flood threat there as well in the short term.
