Flood watches and warnings remain posted in the South as continued heavy rain and storms fall across the region.
The flood threat will continue spreading east toward the Appalachians and Mid-Atlantic through Friday.
Gusty winds, low humidity, and ongoing drought conditions will keep the threat for wildfires critical to extreme across the Great Basin, Rockies and Intermountain West.
Rising temperatures across the entire West will only worsen drought and wildfire conditions as we move into the weekend.
Cooler temperatures and mostly dry weather will make for a pleasant weekend across the Northeast.
