Friday Flood Update: We received 6.14″ of rain at the WCBI Studios within just a few hours. That’s more rain than we received for the entire month of June!
Today: Like Friday, it looks like we’ll have more clouds than sun around the region along with scattered showers and storms. Pockets of heavy rainfall will be possible yet again. Peak temperatures should be only in the low 80s but the humidity will continue to make things a bit uncomfortable. The wind will be from the southeast between 5 and 10 mph.
A Flash Flood Watch is in effect for Lamar County. This watch is in effect through 7am Sunday morning.
We also have a Flash Flood Warning that will go into effect for the Buttahatchie River near Aberdeen from Monday and Tuesday. The maximum forecast river state is 7.7 feet today. Flood Stage is 13.0 feet. We could see near or above flood stage on Monday at 13.7 feet. The river is expected to fall below flood stage on Tuesday. When the river is at or near 14 feet, low lying farmland near the river begins to flood.
With yesterday’s rainfall, streets flooded and in some places up to 3 feet! Click here to view our coverage. With saturated grounds, we could see more localized flooding this afternoon. Stay tuned to WCBI News & right here on wcbi.com for your complete 1st Alert Weather coverage.
Sunday: Rain chances will decrease just a bit but we may still have to dodge a few showers or storms from time to time. Mid to upper 80s appear to be more realistic during the afternoon hours.
Early Next Week: The chance of rain will lower and high temperatures will rise back into the low 90s. Low temperatures will be in the low 70s. This is typical for early July.
Late Next Week: A weak cold front may enter the picture and give us an increased chance of showers and storms Thursday and/or Friday.
