...MODERATE TO LOCALLY HEAVY RAINFALL WILL INCREASE THE FLOODING
THREAT ONCE AGAIN THURSDAY THROUGH FRIDAY NIGHT...

RECENT PRECIPITATION EVENTS...INCLUDING A WINTER STORM LATE LAST
WEEK...HAVE RESULTED IN A GROUND THAT IS SATURATED ACROSS MUCH OF
THE MIDSOUTH. IN ADDITION TO THIS...AROUND ONE INCH OF RAIN FELL
MONDAY NIGHT AND TUESDAY MORNING OVER MANY PORTIONS OF THE
REGION. AS A RESULT OF A SATURATED GROUND MUCH OF THIS
PRECIPITATION...AND ANTICIPATED PRECIPITATION LATER THIS
WEEK...WILL BECOME RUNOFF AND THEREFORE THE POTENTIAL FOR FLOODING
EXISTS AND WILL CONTINUE THROUGH THE WEEKEND.

SEVERAL RIVERS AND STREAMS ACROSS THE REGION ARE CURRENTLY AT
ACTION OR FLOOD STAGE AND ADDITIONAL RISES ARE LIKELY AS MORE
PRECIPITATION FALLS...ENHANCING THE FLOOD POTENTIAL. RAIN CHANCES
WILL CONTINUE ON WEDNESDAY FOR NORTH MISSISSIPPI BEFORE MORE
WIDESPREAD AND POTENTIALLY HEAVY RAIN ON THURSDAY AND FRIDAY AS A
LOW PRESSURE SYSTEM MOVES NORTH FROM THE GULF OF MEXICO AND JUST
TO THE WEST OF THE AREA BY LATE IN THE WEEK. 1 TO 3 ADDITIONAL
INCHES OF RAINFALL IS POSSIBLE WEDNESDAY EVENING THROUGH FRIDAY
NIGHT...WITH LOCALLY HEAVIER AMOUNTS POSSIBLE IN TRAINING
THUNDERSTORMS.

PLEASE STAY TUNED TO FUTURE PRODUCTS FROM OUR OFFICE REGARDING
POTENTIAL FLOODING. A FLOOD WATCH WILL BE POSSIBLE LATE IN THE
WEEK DEPENDING ON FORECAST PRECIPITATION AMOUNTS. NEVER ATTEMPT TO
DRIVE ACROSS FLOODED ROADWAYS AS YOU REMEMBER TO TURN
AROUND...DONT DROWN.
