AccuWeather: Rain, thunderstorms widespread across Southeast; rain gear for trick-or-treating?

An influx of moisture from the Gulf of Mexico will bring widespread rain and thunderstorms to the Deep South and Southeast midweek.

Beneficial showers and thunderstorms are expected to blossom across the drought-stricken Southeast on Tuesday as a wave of energy tracks northward out of the Gulf of Mexico. Areas from the Florida Panhandle into the Carolinas can expect the rainfall to aid with drought relief.

Pensacola, Florida, Atlanta, Georgia and Charlotte, North Carolina, are all currently dealing with severe drought. Extended summerlike conditions through September into early October quickly expanded drought conditions across this region.

Beneficial rainfall will continue across the Southeast into Wednesday and Thursday as Gulf moisture will continue to produce showers and thunderstorms across the Southeast.

While most of the wet weather will be confined to the Southeast Tuesday, an approaching storm system tracking through the center of the country will bring rainfall to a wider swath of the Deep South and southern Plains Wednesday.

Travelers on I-75 may have to deal with episodes of reduced visibility, ponding on the roadways and slower speeds courtesy of the expected rainfall.

You may need raingear for Halloween trick-or-treating.
