...Rain Likely to Elevate River Flooding Potential This Week...

Rain will increase in coverage over the Midsouth on Monday and
likely concentrate near cold front as it moves into central
Mississippi late Monday night. Portions of northeast Mississippi
near Tupelo have received 150 TO 200 percent of normal rainfall
since late January, and soils remain saturated in advance of this

An additional round of showers and thunderstorms may bring locally
heavy rainfall to a good portion of the Midsouth Wednesday.

There is a potential for 5 to 7 inches of rainfall by Thursday, south
of a Charleston to Tupelo Mississippi line. This will likely elevate
river flooding potential.

In addition to the Midsouth proper, heavy rainfall is forecast
further east into Alabama across the Tennessee River Basin. Like
northeast Mississippi, north Alabama has received 150 to 200
percent of normal rainfall since late January. The Tennessee River
was already at Moderate Flood at Savannah, Tennessee this morning.
Additional heavy rainfall over the Tennessee River would likely
exacerbate flooding.

Please monitor the latest rainfall and river forecasts. Be
prepared to move to higher ground if a flood warning is issued for
your area.
