Flash flood watch in effect until Thursday morning for some Pine Belt counties
PINE BELT, Miss. (WDAM) - Happy Tuesday, everyone.
A flash flood watch is in effect in Walthall, Marion, Lamar, Forrest, Perry, Greene, George, Pearl River and Stone counties until 7 a.m. Thursday.
What is left of Tropical Depression Nicholas will slowly move over our area and could drop some pretty heavy rain over the next few days resulting in flash flooding of certain areas.
After the system moves out of the area, there will be a return of mainly afternoon and early evening showers and T-storms through the weekend.
Highs on Wednesday will be in the upper 70s and in the lower to mid-80s for the weekend. Lows will be in the lower 70s each day.
Please keep posted on future forecasts until the event has ended. We are still tracking two very active waves in the Atlantic.
One is near the Bahamas, but that system should have no effect on our weather.
The other system is located just off the African coast. It is forecast to move toward the west and could become a tropical depression during the next several.
We have plenty of time to watch this system, and it is not a threat to Pine Belt at this time.
