First Alert Forecast: rain returns as river flooding continues
Rain Returns Through Mid-Week (Source: WLBT)

Flash flooding will be a concern into the evening hours as a cold front sinks south through the state... Shower and storm coverage will pick up north to south tonight and we could see an isolated strong-severe thunderstorm. A Flash Flood Watch is in effect for this reason.

River levels are dropping in our central counties but rising downstream, so continue to heed any warnings from local officials as we deal with flooding across Central and South Mississippi!

More rain will continue to impact the area through Thursday before high pressure dries us out Friday and Saturday. Another system brings more showers to the area Sunday-Monday. For this reason, up to 3″ of rainfall accumulation will be possible area-wide.

First Alert Forecast: rain returns, river flooding continues
