Rain returns tomorrow
Flooding rain possible
The National Weather Service has issued a Flash Flood Watch through Thursday for all of South Mississippi. We are expecting excessive rainfall and strong storms this week. We have issued Alert Days for Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday. Each day will bring rain, some very heavy at times, and thunderstorms. Some of the thunderstorms could be strong to severe with high winds, hail and/or isolated tornadoes. Stay weather aware, and be prepared for a rainy week ahead.
The rain chances will increase in the morning hours of Tuesday. Into the afternoon hours, we are expecting some of the heaviest rainfall. Flooding in low-lying and flood-prone areas will be a real possibility. If you come to a road covered in water, turn around; don’t drown.
Ponding on roads will be likely over the next few days. Drive safely, and take it slow.
We will have a break on Friday from the rain for it to return for the weekend.
