...The potential for Flooding will continue across much of the
Midsouth Through Late Saturday Night...

.A low pressure system will interact with deep moisture to
produce showers and thunderstorms across the Midsouth through
late Saturday night. Rainfall of 2 to 5 inches will be possible,
mainly north of Interstate 40. This additional rainfall on
saturated soils will result in additional run-off into rivers
that are already running high from recent rainfall. Widespread
flooding of rural lowlands and poor drainage urban areas is also
anticipated.
