AccuWeather Global Weather Center -- 7 October 2014 -- AccuWeather reports the combination of tropical moisture from Simon and a slow-moving frontal zone will unleash heavy rain and the risk of localized flooding in a large portion of the central United States this week.
Leftover tropical moisture from Simon will impact parts of the Southwest this week. However, moisture will be strung along farther to the east over time.
Over the southern Plains, a great temperature contrast will develop prior to the breakout of heavy rain and drenching thunderstorms.
