Round after round of rain has moved across parts of the South this week, and it is expected to continue falling Wednesday. A swath from Oklahoma to Tennessee has the potential to see some flash flooding during the day, according to the FOX Forecast Center. A broad area of the South, from Oklahoma to West Virginia, could see up to 3 inches of rain by Friday. Isolated areas of Missouri, Arkansas, Tennessee and Kentucky could see as much as 5 inches of rain.
After a fairly sloppy Tuesday evening, much of the Interstate 95 corridor will see rain again Wednesday. The morning commute will likely be wet for much of Maine, while lunchtime will be damp for the New York City tri-state area. Rain is expected to taper off by the late afternoon.

Today marks the 81st anniversary of the attack on Pearl Harbor, which propelled the U.S. into World War II. President Franklin Delano Roosevelt called Dec. 7, 1941, "a date which will live in infamy." In the days that followed the attack, the government locked down weather information amid fear that the data could fall into enemy hands. Daily weather maps were still maintained by the U.S. Weather Bureau, but they weren't released for seven days. Read all about the restrictions that lasted for nearly two years here.
Once the ban took effect, weather information broadcasted on the radio would be limited to severe weather bulletins. Restrictions were kept in place until October of 1943.
