With snow in Michigan and Ohio, 60-mph winds in parts of New Jersey, and flood watches in many states, this weekend's weather had some wild turns.

Colder than average temperatures - which blanketed much of the East - were ushered in by heavy rain and thunderstorms.

Parts of Missouri had flood and wind damage from storms that brought strong winds, hail and heavy rain. In that state, Washington County reported some residential flooding, as well as well as flood damage to the courthouse.

Rain in New Jersey, Pennsylvania and New York hampered ongoing flood cleanup but did not cause a great deal of new damage, emergency management officials reported.

Highs in parts of Georgia on Sunday will be in the 50s, forecasters said. Frost and freeze could penetrate deeply into the southeast both Sunday and Monday.

Heavy rain and 50-mph winds also brought the possibility of flash flooding to Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands. Emergency management officials were closely watching the situation.
