A major storm system is developing in the nation's heartland bringing some rough weather across the central U.S. including the potential for flooding on Saturday.
Flood watches were posted on Saturday morning from northern Texas to western Pennsylvania including many big cities like Dallas, Little Rock, Nashville, Louisville and Pittsburgh.
Behind the storm system comes cooler air and wintry weather resulting in a number of winter storm warnings and advisories being posted.

Scattered severe thunderstorms are expected from northern and eastern Texas into southeastern Oklahoma, northwestern Louisiana, Arkansas, southern Missouri, northern Mississippi, western Tennessee, western Kentucky and far southwestern Indiana
The storm will develop on Saturday morning but the worst of it is expected by midday and evening.
There will be heavy rain and dangerous thunderstorms in the Mississippi River Valley from Little Rock to Memphis, as well as along parts of the Midwest from Paducah, Kentucky to Cincinnati.
At the northern edge of the storm, snow will develop and intensify as it heads towards Minnesota.
There will be low visibility and the snow will be likely be an issue throughout Saturday evening.
The flooding has already claimed at least three lives this week. A one-year-old girl was found dead in her family's flooded Michigan yard after reportedly wandering from the home on Wednesday, according to the AP.
Another death was reported Wednesday when 53-year-old Victor French's vehicle was swept off the road as he attempted to drive across a flooded bridge near Stilwell, Oklahoma, the Oklahoma Highway Patrol announced.
