...HEAVY RAIN AND FLOODING POSSIBLE BY THE WEEKEND...

A tropical system moving west across the northern Gulf Coast may
spread heavy rainfall over much of the area, especially southern
portions, this weekend. Considerable uncertainty currently exists on
exact areas and amounts, but this system has the potential to
produce high rainfall rates over long periods of time which could
easily cause flash flooding regardless of ambient conditions.

The Mississippi River continues to experience high stages and
ongoing flooding. Expectations with this event could lead to further
significant flooding issues. In addition to river flooding, areal
flooding from river backwater could be exacerbated depending on
where the heavy rainfall eventually sets up.

Interests across the ArkLaMiss are urged to monitor the latest
forecasts and weather developments, and be prepared to take
protective actions if flooding develops.
