That system heading east just in time for the Monday morning commute. Rob Marciano has more. Reporter: Tonight, gulf coast residents bracing for more of this. Heavy rain soaking communities. From Louisiana across southeast Texas. This weekend, galveston getting a record. And over a foot of rain swamping these cars. The lights of swamped cars flickering. Others forced to abandon their vehicles. I was watching tow trucks one after another. Reporter: Rivers rising quickly in San Antonio. Flood water stranding this driver and her son on a bridge. Firefighters having to use a ladder to pull them to safety. Meanwhile, winter blanketing the midwest. In Chicago, the winter weather forcing planes to be de-iced. Rob is here. Give us the bad news. Well, across southeast Texas and southwest Louisiana, the rain will get another round coming. In the next 24 hours, maybe more severe weather as well. And everyone else going to get a piece of this cold air coming by the end of next week. Getting into the deep south as well. Friday and Saturday of next week, everybody gets a piece of it. The coldest air of the season, by far. Thank you. And we still have much more ahead on "World news tonight" this Sunday.
