Rainy so far today. Heavier downpours by tomorrow. Flood threat through Thursday.
It has been a rainy start to Tuesday. Expect rainy weather to continue for the rest of the day. And even heavier rain is likely from late tonight through tomorrow night. We are under a Flash Flood Watch through Thursday. You should monitor the latest updates and be prepared to take action should Flash Flood Warnings be issued. These heavy rains are associated with Nicholas, a weakening tropical storm crawling eastward from Texas to Louisiana. Up to about six inches of rainfall will likely occur over parts of South Mississippi through Thursday, with locally higher amounts possible. Thursday still looks wet at times but perhaps the rain will be less heavy. But, by then the ground may be so saturated that even just a little bit of rain could lead to flooding then.
