Heavy Rains Bring Flooding, Storm Concerns Across Mississippi

JACKSON, MISS– Rain is finally moving across Mississippi, but the National Weather Service warns that thanks to a front, too much too quickly could cause flooding concerns. 

South Mississippi faces the biggest threat for flooding today.

“Totals could reach between 4 and 7 inches,” says David Cox with the National Weather Service. The heaviest rain is expected to start moving in by late afternoon.

The heavy rain will eventually move its way North through the state, lessening in intensity, but still bringing much needed rain.

The front that is pushing in is also bringing high winds, which Cox says could lead to another concern.

“With the high winds, a tornado can’t be ruled out,” says Cox. The highest winds will be seen across south Mississippi.
