...More Heavy Rain Expected Next Week... It`s going to be a wet start to the new week, and new month. While the actual daytime Sunday looks dry, rain chances really ramp up during the Sunday evening through Wednesday time frame. And the problem with that is, the Mid-South still has not fully recovered from our recent rainfall events. The ground remains saturated, and rivers, while falling, are running fairly high. Keeping in mind we are still 4 to 6 days away from this rain event, several models are showing a prolonged moderate to heavy rain event from Sunday night through Wednesday time frame. The envelope of potential forecast storm total amounts range from as low as 2 inches, to perhaps as high as 5 or 7 inches, by the time it all winds down later in the week. If this occurs, expect a myriad of flooding issues again, from roadway ponding, to more widespread street and areal flooding. Subsiding creeks and streams will be filling up again, and all of this water will dump into the river systems, ultimately halting their falls and climbing them back up again. Use your time now to prepare accordingly, and stay tuned to the latest updated forecasts for this next incoming heavy rain system.
