Bill, the second tropical system of this young season moved inland near Matagorda Island, Texas on Tuesday. The storm has been downgraded to a depression moving slowly northeast over Oklahoma this morning. Bill brought rough surf and some coastal flooding to the Texas Gulf Coast, but the biggest threat continues to be from heavy rain. The region has been saturated so far this month with additional rainfall of over 200mm (8 inches) falling from Bill. Severe flooding is occurring in portions of northeast Texas into Oklahoma and spreading northeast into the Ohio Valley. Some of that moisture will make it into southern New England by Sunday and even enhance the showers and storms forecast for southern Quebec. At this time it looks like the heaviest rain will remain south of Montreal over New England.
