Keep the umbrella handy, be aware of flooded areas

Jackson, Miss– The weekend will bring more rain to Mississippi, causing southwest Mississippi to brace for more flooding. 

Pike, Hancock, Pearl River, and Walthall counties are under a flash flood warning. Copiah, Pike, Adams, Amite and Wilkinson counties experienced flooding on Friday, and with more rain lasting through Sunday, flash flooding is still possible, and what is flooded could take longer to recede. If a road is flooded over, do not attempt to drive over it.

For the rest of south Mississippi,  a 60 percent chance of rain Saturday with that moisture keeping things cool with temps in the low 80’s. Saturday night temps drop into the 70’s, with an elevated chance of rain and thunderstorms for southwest Mississippi at 80 percent, just 40 percent for the south central and southeastern portions of the state.

Central Mississippi, Saturday heavy rain is possible which could bring some localized flooding. High temps are in the low 80’s for the day, dropping to the low 70’s overnight.

Saturday for North Mississippi has slightly warmer temps in the upper 80’s, chance of rain holding at nearly 40 percent, but that chance increases slightly and temps fall into the 70’s for the overnight low.

Temperature wise Sunday you’ll see much of the same, but as the day progresses and the slow-moving, rain-producing front begins to break down, rain chances will begin to diminish.
