Weather Update: Flash Flood Warnings

Posted: Updated:

Slow moving downpours have been ongoing for much of the day. Initially over south Mississippi, these heavy rains have moved further north and are along the I-20 corridor as of late Saturday afternoon.

The National Weather Service has issued numerous Flash Flood Warnings, including for parts of the tri-county metro area. Rainfall totals are estimated to be from two to four inches in the warned areas.

The risk for heavy downpours will continue through mid-evening, with only a small chance for showers in the forecast overnight.

I expect to see more heavy downpours to develop on Sunday afternoon and continue through at least Sunday evening. Flash Flooding could again be a problem in a few areas.
