Fire Weather Planning Forecast For Extreme Southeast Arkansas,
Northeast Louisiana, and Central Mississippi
National Weather Service Jackson MS
258 PM CDT Thu Aug 22 2019

.DISCUSSION...Scattered to numerous showers and storms will remain
the norm across all districts through the weekend. Deep moisture
over the area will result in rather efficient rainfall producing
showers and storms during this time. This could result in some
localized flash flooding across the area, especially if multiple
slow-moving storms repeatedly move across the same location.
Activity will subside during the evening hours, but some isolated
convection will remain possible through the overnight hours.
Patchy fog will be possible across the area both Friday and
Saturday mornings.
