Rain for the Whole State This Week, Threat of Flooding, Tornadoes On the Coast

GULFPORT, Miss.–Harrison County was under a flash flood warning Sunday night. While that expired and was over with by late Sunday, the possibility of more flooding was especially prominent across the coast for Monday, with strong and even severe storms bringing the rain.

“The rain yesterday was well over three inches along the Mississippi coast,” said Meteorologist Ken Graham, with the National Weather Service New Orleans office, which monitors the Miss. coast. “So we have another impulse moving out of Texas and that’ll reach the coastal areas later this morning into this afternoon, bringing another round of rain.”

Graham said the ground is already saturated.

“With all the rain we’ve already had, we simply can’t take much more.”

He said high winds and the possibility of tornadoes will come with the system.

“We’re watching it real close,” he said.

The rest of the state also had rain in the forecast, along with thunderstorms for Monday, and through the rest of the work week. Keeping an umbrella in the car probably would not be a bad idea.
