I am @AccuFrank on Twitter, which is the most reliable way to get alerted when I post new stuff. There's also this Facebook fan page thingie, which is not particularly reliable for that but it's good for posting little things where 140 characters won't do them justice.
West Texas, areas toward the East Coast and parts of Florida see the most widespread rains the next few days while it stays mostly dry elsewhere through this weekend.
Extreme rain through this weekend will cause flooding in the Carolinas; it's not really nice anywhere near the East Coast. Fortunately, it's nice elsewhere for now. The tropics remain active.
While it looks likely at this point that Joaquin goes out to sea, we still have a setup for parts of the Southeast to see some extreme rainfall.
Several separate storm systems will affect the South over the next several day with most of the action in the Southeast.
A big surge of moisture and perhaps a depression or storm will be heading into the Southeast early next week, while most areas west of the Mississippi remain warm and almost summery.
A storm over the East Coast is causing a variety of problems while the next area of interest will be the Gulf of Mexico.
