Tropical Depression Bill, Feasting on Saturated Soil, Spreads Heavy Rain Beyond Texas

Tropical Depression Bill was spinning its way across the Dallas–Fort Worth metroplex on Wednesday morning, and is set to follow a course that will take it across Oklahoma, another state that is still drying after epic floods in May
From there, the storm will continue to follow atmospheric train tracks that have been laid by several other weather systems, which will turn it northeastward by Wednesday night
Bill will send a plume of moisture extending like a major artery in the human body. This plume will transport unusually high amounts of water vapor from the Gulf of Mexico into the Ohio Valley, across the Appalachians, and into the Mid-Atlantic region by this weekend. As a result, heavy rain and potentially deadly flash flooding could occur in all of these areas.
