SYNOPSIS...

Rainfall from 5 to 8 inches is expected to fall from Northwest

Mississippi River from Arkansas City to Natchez well ahead of
the Cairo crest due to increased flows that will come
from the Arkansas River. Much of the heavy rainfall in
Northwest Arkansas and eastern Oklahoma will flow into the
Arkansas River. Planted crop land within the levee system will
be inundated.

PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS...

Do not drive or walk through areas where water covers roadway! The
water may be deeper than it appears. Remember...Turn around, don`t
drown!

Forecasts are based on rainfall that has occurred and that which is
forecast to occur. Routine 24 hours of forecast rainfall is used for
most sites. Routine 48 hours of forecast rainfall is used on Tibbee
Creek...Luxapallila Creek...Noxubee River...and the Tombigbee River.


The next regularly scheduled update is expected between 8 and 10 AM.
