Good Morning! A Special Weather Statement is in effect for North MS concerning severe weather/heavy rainfall today through Tuesday. A Flash Flood Watch is in effect for North MS until 7pm Tuesday. Rainfall amounts of 3-5 inches expected with locally higher amounts. Expecting multiple rounds of storms during this time period and these storms could train over the same areas which will increase the risk of flash flooding. Remember Turn Around, Don’t Drown. Do not try to cross over a flooded road. At Smithville, MS, the current temperature is 65 and it feels like 65. Highs will continue to range between 70 and 84 with lows between 44 and 68.
