Flash flooding occurred this morning across South Mississippi due to five to nine inches of rain we picked up in the past 24-36 hours. We have had this afternoon to try to dry out some before our next round of rain tomorrow. Rain chances stick around for Friday and early Saturday. In fact, the Flash Flood Watch has been extended in Saturday at noon.
The flood water will take time to recede, and any additional rainfall will cause more flash flooding. If you come to a road covered in water, turn around and find an alternate path.
Area rivers are also rising; be sure to check your local river forecast for the latest.
Friday and Saturday will see continued scattered showers and possible thunderstorms. We could pick up an additional one to two inches with higher totals in some isolated locations.
