Torrential rains flood the southeast and northeast in the last days of 2022

Those living in the southeast and northeast are set to get a few final bouts of rain to add to the annual rainfall totals for 2022 as a storm system aims to end the year on a wet note.

Rain and thunderstorms will begin Thursday in the lower Mississippi Valley, flooding places like Houston and Little Rock, Arkansas, according to the PKB Forecast Center.

With powerful humidity and energy coming from the Gulf of Mexico, some storms can become severe.

Heavy rain that could lead to flash flooding, as well as damaging wind gusts are the main threats to any severe storm that forms, although an isolated tornado cannot be ruled out.

By Friday, the rain will spread eastward across much of the southeast, with showers likely in New Orleans and Nashville.

Widespread precipitation totals of 1 to 2 inches are likely in the region with isolated amounts of 3 inches possible along the Florida Panhandle.

Heavy rainfall could lead to flash flooding.

On the last day of 2022, showers and thunderstorms will spread from northern Florida to Ohio. Again, downpours of half an inch to an inch are likely, and these widespread rains and storms will likely impact New Year’s Eve plans.

While extreme weather is unlikely, heavy rains could cause flooding problems in populated areas and put a damper on any outdoor celebrations.
