Gary B: Water, water coming down and all the rivers did rise!


Water, water coming down and all the rivers did rise!

That might be what happens if the National Weather Service (NWS) is correct in their forecasting.

The NWS says we will have several rounds of heavy rainfall. Two to four inches will be possible across the state, with an axis of six to eight inches of rain over the eastern sections of the state.

Rainfall arrives Tuesday (today) and lingers through Sunday, Feb. 24, with a brief break in precipitation expected on Wednesday and part of Thursday.

The NWS says ongoing river flooding could be severely worsened by additional heavy rainfall. Flash flooding will be a concern across the state as well, especially on today and Saturday.

The current forecast has the heaviest amounts of rain over Tennessee, Mississippi, and Alabama, but a slight westward shift could increase rainfall amounts over Arkansas.
