Severe is expected tonight over the ArkLaMiss as a squall line moves across the area, beginning this evening over western areas and reaching eastern Mississippi well after midnight. The greatest threat for severe weather including damaging winds and tornadoes will be in the upper Delta region.
Afternoon showers and storms along with a line of strong storms tonight will bring an additional 1-2" of rainfall to the area. Due to the recent heavy rainfalls earlier this week, flash flooding will occur more easily during heavy rains. Use caution when driving in low-lying areas with water over roadways.
As rain and storms form again Sunday afternoon, flash flooding will become a concern yet again. Another 1-2" of rainfall can be expected from Sunday afternoon through early Monday morning.
Strong south winds are expected across most of the forecast area on today with wind gusts up to 35 to 40 mph possible mainly during the afternoon and evening. Small tree limbs may be blown down, and driving will be more difficult for high profile vehicles on west to east roads.
