[MWN VIDEO BLOG] Where are those ark plans? Flooding rain possible over the next week

I know we're tired of the rain, but another very wet week is ahead. The potential for flooding and flash flooding exists with heavy rainfall Tuesday into Wednesday and again Saturday into Sunday (next weekend), though rain chances occur nearly every day this week, except Monday. Watch the video forecast discussion below for all of the details or check out the graphics below for a high-level overview.
