The central portions of the country are going to be targeted by several rounds of heavy rain showers in the coming weeks, increasing the likelihood of flooding events as spring marches on.

Here is what you need to know about this flooding risk in the heartland.

Persistent Rain Showers Will Raise Risk of Flooding in Central U.S.

Too much of a good thing can be a bad thing. This may be demonstrated across the central U.S. as persistent precipitation raises the risk of flooding.

According to the long-range forecast, a number of large weather makers moving into the region on repeat will create this risk through at least mid-April.

There are at least two primary storm systems on deck, predicted to affect the central U.S. through the middle of the month. The first system is forecast to form along a weather front that is expected to stall out across the central Plains states and into the Ohio Valley and the Great Lakes for this weekend weather forecast.

This rainy pattern will stick around into the early part of the new work week.
