09/15 Ryan’s “Flooding Woes” Wednesday Evening Forecast
Several inches of rain fell today and are causing flooding issues around the Gulf Coast.
Flooding woes have popped up and will continue across South MS as more and more rain moves through. Several inches have already fallen since early this morning, mostly in East Harrison and Jackson Counties, causing flooded roads and rising rivers. Expect these trends to continue as Nicholas has slowed to a crawl and will continue to force moisture into the area.
It won’t be quite as consistent as it was this morning and today, but rain chances of 50% or higher continue through the end of the week.
This and the inland rain Mississippi is seeing will keep river flooding an issue for the rest of the week as well. The Biloxi, Wolf, and Tchoutacabouffa Rivers are all expected to crest at moderate flood stages by tomorrow night. Continue to exercise caution in these areas and watch for flooded roads while driving. Remember to slow down and giver yourself plenty of time to stop as roads will be slick.
