Very Wet Weather Pattern -- But Not Where It Is Needed

While there is an high risk of flash floods (scroll down) this weekend from the Ohio Valley to Texas, the the rain generally isn't forecast to fall where it is most needed. Below is a map of the drought in the southern High Plains and Four Corners area as of yesterday. The reds are the area where rain is most needed.

Below is the forecast precipitation amounts for the next seven days. Many areas will receive higher than normal rainfall amounts.
With the exception of the very dry areas in Missouri, the widespread rains the next seven days will not significantly erase the drought.
