Father's Day will be soggy for some as Tropical Depression Bill continues moving through the country.

On Friday morning, the storm was making its way northeast through Arkansas at about 10 miles per hour, according to the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration's Storm Prediction Center. Up to 12 inches of rain from Bill had fallen in parts of Oklahoma.

The Weather Channel reported a 2-year-old child died due to flooding caused by Bill. He was found Thursday after being swept away near a creek in Ardmore, Oklahoma, where 10 inches of rain fell.

The storm is expected to move through the Mississippi Valley and into the Ohio Valley tonight and into Saturday. Flash flooding is possible in southern Missouri, southern Illinois, southern Indiana and Kentucky.

River flooding is possible.

Remnants of Tropical Depression Bill are expected to hit the East Coast by Sunday.
