'Horrible scenes:' More rain threatens areas swamped by record floods in central, southern US

More unwelcome rain is forecast this week in much of the central and southern U.S., falling upon areas already swamped by record-breaking floods.

"Many locations from the central and southern Plains into the Mississippi Valley and Ohio Valley could see 1 to 3 inches of rain in the week ahead," the Weather Channel warned, with "locally up to 5 inches of rain possible in some areas."

To make matters worse, rain from a developing tropical storm in the Gulf of Mexico could bring additional rainfall to the region: "Tropical moisture from the western Gulf of Mexico may begin impacting parts of south Texas on Tuesday," the National Weather Service said.

The weather system, which would be named Tropical Storm Barry if its winds reach 39 mph, is now sitting in the Gulf just east of Mexico.
