National Weather Service Jackson MS
256 PM CST Wed Feb 21 2018

.DISCUSSION...Rain and thunderstorms will continue into the rest of the
evening, mainly focused in the NW region. Heavy rainfall from convective
storms could create flash flooding. A few isolated thunderstorms could be
severe and create frequent lightning along with strong winds. Storms chances
will diminish late tonight but scattered showers will still linger in the
Northern Delta. Fog is not expected overnight. /SKH/
