...Rises on area rivers may lead to minor to moderate flooding by
early next week...
A series of strong weather disturbances, one moving through the
Mid-Gulf region this morning, and a stronger one expected by late
Sunday evening into early Monday, is expected to bring moderate to
heavy rainfall. These disturbances are tapping into unusually warm
and moist air for the early spring.
Cumulative rainfall totals between the two weather events could
average close to 7 inches by Monday. If this much rainfall does
occur, then some minor river flooding will result, mainly on the
northshore rivers including the Amite-Comite, Tangipahoa and
Tchefuncte and Pearl Rivers and across the Mississippi Gulf
Drainage, including the Wolf, Biloxi and Tchoutacabouffa and
Persons living close to the area rivers and streams should stay
aware of the weather situation through Monday and be prepared to
take action in the event flood warnings are issued for your area.
