    Message Summary: ...locally heavy rainfall event shaping up across the area for sunday with flash and river flooding possible...
    A deep mid-level trough will swing through the central plains with an associated deepening surface low late this weekend into early next week. This low will move slowly into the midwest and drag a cold front toward and through the lower mississippi valley between late saturday and early monday. The combination of an intense and divergent upper level jet across the lower mississippi valley and strong influx of very moist air from the gulf of mexico should enhance torrential rain potential from thunderstorms anticipated over the forecast area, mainly sunday. Widespread 2 to 3 inch rainfall totals are expected but there is potential for a north to south oriented axis in the forecast area to experience prolonged training of storms and localized rain amounts in excess of 4 to 6 inches. A flash flood watch is in effect for areas along and west of i-55 from late tonight through sunday evening. A flash flood watch may need to be extended to east of i-55 later tonight or tomorrow morning. As the system moves across the area from just before daybreak sunday through the day before exiting eastern mississippi during the evening hours, rainfall rates will be very high producing flash flooding across the arklamiss region. Many small streams and rivers will be impacted with minor to moderate river flooding possible. The rivers most vulnerable to flooding continue to be the big black, pearl, chickasawhay, leaf, and tallahala creek. Rivers and bayous across southeast arkansas and northeast louisiana will also see very sharp rises with some going into flood. Those living along small streams and flood prone areas should take preparations now to remove any debris from drainage systems that may have clogged by the early april flash floods. It would be wise to move personal items from low lying areas that flooded earlier in the month as an extra precaution. Once again, rainfall rates may be intense as the system moves across and could lead to some localized flash flooding. Please stay tuned to local media and your national weather service as we approach this rainfall event.
