JACKSON, Miss.–You should be ready for a very wet week. Rainfall will be plentiful as severl weather systems come through, leading to the possibility of flash flooding and perhaps also some river and creek flooding.
The National Weather Service issued a special outlook for the week that says rainfall, especially in east Mississippi, could be steady all week long. That could lead to as much as six inches of rain falling before Friday.
The area expected to get the most rain is east of a line from Brookhaven to Eupora, said the Weather Service.
North and west, including the Delta, will likely get up to four inches.
If you live along the Yazoo, Big Black, Tombigbee and Upper Pearl rivers, those basins were described as especially vulnerable to flooding right now, with high moisture content already in the ground. That means the ground is so saturated that it can’t hold much more water and that could make for some dangerous situations if you live in or drive in those areas.
News Mississippi will be ready to bring you any flood watches or warnings this week.
