...Heavy Rain Expected Across the Mid-South Today through
Thursday...
.An upper-level storm system will interact with a slow-moving
cold front, resulting in heavy rainfall across the Mid-South.
Heavy rainfall is expected to shift into the I-40 corridor and
then points south during today and into tonight. Widespread
rainfall amounts of 2 to 4 inches are expected, with localized
higher amounts. Run-off from heavy rainfall is expected to result
in rapid rises in river and stream levels and may cause low-land
flooding. Urban and other poor drainage areas may also experience
flooding. Rain will decrease in coverage and intensity from west
to east on Thursday as drier air moves into the Mid-South.
