HATTIESBURG, Miss.--Hattiesburg and Lamar County just can't catch a break. Ever since the tornado roared through Sunday, recovery crews have been soaked by day after day of rain. Today was not expected to be any different, with a 100 percent chance of rain and a flash flood watch in effect. But, the potential for severe weather could make things worse.
The highest threat is in the Hwy. 84 corridor, according to National Weather service Meteorologist Eric Carpenter, who said the main threats will be wind and hail.
"And possibly a tornado," he said. Temps are expected to stay on the mild side.
Carpenter said the major rainfall should start to move out by tonight, even though there could be lingering rainfall on Wednesday.
The sun is expected to make a cameo appearance Thursday, with clouds and colder air moving in Friday.
There's a chance for flurries Friday night and Saturday, but no snow is expected to stick.
