>>> threat of more flash floods in what has become an endless summer of rain. let's get the latest from the weather channel 's meteorologist kim cunningham.

>> hi, kate. it wouldn't be so bad if we had such a rainy summer, but the soil is saturated. we have had more rainfall than we want for sure across the southeast. so the ground is very wet, any additional rain, a lot of it will run off or even trees might have a problem, whether they could fall down with gusty winds. so this is a problem, especially since the jet stream does not want to move much. and that means we're going to continue to draw up that tropical moisture, and it's going to get involved right around the front. that's going to be additional moisture and more rain coming into this area. we're expecting flash flooding and the potential over the next probably 24 to 48 hours in this area. back to
