...The potential for Flooding will continue across much of the
Midsouth Through Late Tonight...
.A low pressure system will interact with deep moisture to
produce showers and thunderstorms across the Midsouth through
late tonight. Some thunderstorms may be severe. Rainfall of 2 to
5 inches will be possible, mainly north of Interstate 40. This
additional rainfall on saturated soils will result in additional
run-off into rivers that are already running high from recent
rainfall. Widespread flooding of rural lowlands and poor drainage
urban areas is also anticipated.
