Let me take you straight through the flood watches that extend all the way back through west Virginia, Ohio, Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. The sere vie thunderstorm watch that includes Washington, D.C., Baltimore, all of Delaware. Then it's all along this tropical moisture riding on that front that is stationary. It doesn't move much. It's got a tornado watch for much of Kansas. The severe storms tonight, that threat moving east, Nashville, Memphis, Dallas, all included tomorrow, David.
