Very Wet Halloween, Flash Flood Watch For Bottom Half of Mississippi

JACKSON, Miss.–The entire state was set to get a good soaking for Halloween. The bottom half of Mississippi was put under a flash flood watch that goes into early Sunday morning.

Rain was expected to last into Sunday, too, with a slight risk for severe weather in some of Mississippi’s southern counties.

“For the most part we’re looking at anywhere from one to three inches,” said Eric Carpenter, a meteorologist with the National Weather Service. “But we’re looking for locally heavier amounts, especially as you go into southeast Mississippi, it wouldn’t be surprising if a few locations get up to five or six inches of rainfall.”


Carpenter said that with the ground already soaked from the last round of rain, it makes for flooding to happen more easily.
