That was produced in part by the same low-pressure system that triggered flooding rains and some severe storms through the Southeast.Mississippi Gov. Phil Bryant on Sunday issued a state of emergency following the strong storms and flooding that started Wednesday, with multiple counties reporting major flooding. Damage possibly caused by tornadoes was reported in two counties, the governor’s office said in a press release.Southern Texas was hammered by thunderstorms and showers over the weekend, and the National Weather Service’s Weather Prediction Center said the Upper Texas Coast and the Gulf Coast of western Louisiana have had “300-600% of normal rainfall” for this time of year. A new area of low pressure is expected from the Great Lakes Monday that is likely to bring rain from Washington, to New York and Boston, Norman said.Those looking for spring might find it in Russia near the Arctic Circle. Temperatures there, Norman said, were in the mid-80s on Sunday.
