Wednesday Weather: More rain, flood potential

Mary Apel

From the NWS in Jackson: The flooding threat continues across the area through this evening, with multiple rounds of heavy rain showers and some thunderstorms expected to bring several inches of rain to many locations. Area soils are saturated, with streams and bayous running high from the last several days of rain. Additional rainfall of two to four is expected on top of what has already fallen, and locally higher amounts are expected in some portion of the area. Minor to moderate river flooding is also expected on some area rivers.

Showers and thunderstorms are likely to bring heavy rainfall to much of the area today. Temperatures will stick around 80 degrees at most locations today due to rain and increased cloud cover.

Storms will continue to bring heavy rainfall to portions of the forecast area through tonight. Temperatures should fall into the lower 70s.
